patotoes growing out of my compost bin.
this may sound like a really silly question to ask, but i think my compost is nearly ready, its brown and moist, although not too wet, it smells right and it looks very much like the stuff i buy (for a small fortune) every so many months.... only thing is i have potato plants growing out of it! i do include potato peal in my mix, as it is on my list of do's and i do turn it over every so often, but i really don't want potato plants growing all around the garden, is there a way to stop this happening (apart from the obvious of not including potato peal!) or is this a sign that i am doing something wrong? or is it just a case that it needs a good dig over again and to be left a bit longer? any advice is more than welcome from all of you expereinced compost makers out there!
