Default how much water do potatoes need?

I planted some potatoes, radishes, carrots and spinach last weekend and I have never planted potatoes before. How often should I water them? Thanks!

We only water our potatoes when the top soil is dry. Last year, we didn't have to water them at all because we had enough rain. They don't need a lot of water.
