Potato "barrel" made from concrete tree ring edging.
The potatoes are growing fast. I didn't have a chance to buy more compost to fill in around them. So I used partially decomposed, compacted maple leaves from last fall.
They filled in around the potato plants nicely.
I don't know if this will work. I've read that straw works, so maybe leaves will work.
