You can take them now or leave them a few more weeks until all the follage is dried off. They will swell some more. If you are going to store them then maybe lift early on a dry day, knock off the soil and let the sun dry out the skins. Basically the skins will harden up with age if left in the ground after the plants have died back and a few hours in the sun will ensure you have a dry spud to store.
Enjoy your chips  ;D

OH told me about that, I said a small prayer for them...

Now lay my spuds to rest
I wish lord you do your best
to make themhappy in your sky
Oven chips please,
We don,t do fries.

And if in time
They make your table
Hose pipe ban is on the label

Amen!
