I read that you can grow potatoes from potato peelings, so long as you leave an eye. My last 2 Russet Potatoes had sprouts on them so I decided to peel them with a knife, carefully, to preserve the eyes.
I let them dry a couple hours, then laid them peeled side down on soil. They need to dry more so they are uncovered.
I just laid the peelings on the compost with about an inch of soil. I will put plain compost material on top, and have grown seed potatoes on top of compost piles successfully.
I hope this works, because it increases your crop if you can use peelings and still eat the potato.
Never mind I may have snow tonight and this is at least a month early for potato planting here!
Three things may (or may not) work in my favor here. One, we are expecting warm weather through my last frost date. Two, a raised bed is a great season extender, and it has been warm for a week, temperatures up to 70°F, and this raised bed receives heat from the trailerstead. Three, a fresh hugelkultur bed is warm and heat rises from a hot hugelkultur compost. It is another great season extender.
When I dug soil today, I dug an area where I buried deadwood a year ago. It was mostly smaller wood that I cleaned up around the house. All the dry wildflowers were composted, as were the twigs. All that was left were the medium tree limbs. Medium for bitty pinyon trees. They were pretty small with a lot of mycelia. Yay! Even better the soil was much richer. I tossed them into raised bed 6. It will shoot through the bed and speed composting of the deadwood in the bottom.
Let me know if you have grown potatoes from peelings! It is worth a try.
