I forgot to write down from my potato package how long it would be before they would be ready to dig.

It depends on if you're growing early or maincrop potatoes. Earlies are usually ready about 10-12 weeks after sowing, about a couple weeks after the plant blooms. Maincrop potatoes are usually ready in about 18-20 weeks, after the foliage has begun to wilt.
I just googled it because it has been so many years since I have had a garden that I couldn't remember. If you want the potatoes fully grown, wait until the plant itself has quit growing and started to die back.
