Potatoes ON wet ground
I've got an area of poorly drained soil that i'm considering growing potatoes on. I'm thinking that if I dig a hole and fill it with good compost,plant the potatoes in it, and then hill up from the surface that i'll have success. The ground is always wet, but at the same time there's never standing water. Any thoughts about this idea? Will the hole I dig just act like a big bowl of water, regardless of the compost in it? We rent the property, so i'm not all that inclined to fix the drainage issue even though it would be self-serving.
