They wont harm your potatoes what compost did you use to grow them in?

Mushrooms usually feed on decaying vegetable matter - nature's way of helping the process of rotting down old wood. There was probably some incompletely rotted twiggy material in the compost and possibly some mushroom spores as well. It will have no effect on the potatoes.
