Potatoes and other questions.

Potatoes and other questions.

My potatoes are going gangbusters, but I like to hill them up with as much compost as I have available. I plant on one foot centers in deep beds. Right now I don't have any, and I don't have accesss to inexspensive hay. The only thing I have available is partially decomposed wood chips which I can get from town. My only concern is that they might tear the skin of the potatoes when I harvest. I'm struggling to find something I can plant in the shady spots of my garden. I grow all the lettuce I need already, and I have about a hundred square feet left to plant. In other partially shaded spots I have cabbage, chard, orach, pumpkins, and squash.
