What is the white stuff in the soil in last years potato bed? Many of my potatoes that I left in the ground went rotten from freezing then defrosting in the severe winter. I have been digging them up today to prepare bed for planting garlic and later onions + shallots. Should I get rid of the white bits in the earth that looks like fungus or possibly a bacteria reaction to the rotting - some of its smelly. Will this cause any problems for whatever I plant next in these beds?
