Potatoes as compost
Hello everyone, I'm pretty new to gardening and compost, it kind of rubbed off on me from my mother. Next spring I'll be starting a pumpkin/gourd patch, about 150 sq ft. I have a decent amount of compost already but I was wondering if adding about 100 lbs of potatoes to the area and covering it with leaves would have any bad side effect ( besides pulling up a bunch of sprouts later on). I already buried a layer of corn stalks in the area to add some air and OM to the site. Thanks, and what a great site this is.
