My potatoes are tall and spindly, I was told to stomp on them to stop the nutrition
going to the leaves and it will go down into the potaoes. Is there any truth to this?

I don't think so since the top are required to help grow the potato's. they don't kill of the tops in commercial fields ever they just wait till they naturally die back then harvest. I would suggest covering the plants with straw so that just the top leaves show and you should get more potato's of all sizes.
