I’m just wondering: Is it possible to just drive around and pick up the leaves people have put out in brown paper bags and stack them up in a corner of the yard (i.e., not dump them out into a big pile)? If I had a corner of the yard with bags stacked, would they still eventually make leaf mold? Maybe stab holes into the bags and stick a little wood chip mycelium into the center?

These bins would be 6-10 feet long, 3 feet wide, and around 1-2 feet deep. The bottom of the bin would be open on the soil and I would likely add some compost or topsoil to help things get started. I would plant the potatoes in that and then cover them with fresh fall leaves. I would add more leaves overtime as the potatoes grew.
