Potato Growing in the Compost Bin
They are now over a foot tall. It used to be pretty shady back there but American Electric Power recently hacked away some tree branches and the plants may get more sun than before.
I see no reason to disturb the tubers. Having something rooted gives us another excuse to be lazy composters and not turn the bin this summer. When the leaves go brown, we'll dig around and see if there are any spuds to harvest.
Last year we had an abundance of volunteer tomatoes and sunflowers but they seem to have not reseeded so well this year. Do you have any volunteers making their home in your yard?
