You may know more or less than I do, so just take it for what it’s worth.) Typically you hill your potatoes up a couple of times with dirt after the plants start growing. An old man who is a friend of mine told me that instead of using dirt to hill up around the plants, he knew someone who used pine straw. He convinced me to try it. I used grass clippings from my lawn mower instead. I had great results. The potatoes grow in the mulch (pine straw, or in my case grass clippings). They are easier to harvest, cleaner, and easier to check on when you’re looking to see if they’re ready. If you want to gather a few early potatoes for peas and potatoes etc. you can just pull the mulch back, gather what you want, and then cover it back up. I recommend it.
Actually I know very little. But I had planned on using grass mulch (grass clippings) to hill up around the taters as they grew. So I'm glad your post serves as a bit of confirmation that I was on the right track.
