Eating Squash From Old Seeds Sprouting in Compost Pile

Tstonorov added on September 13, 2017 | Answered

We have been eating our volunteer squash from our compost pile for years. Then a friend saw this and warned us that it was very dangerous to do so . Is there any truth in this warning? What might be wrong with the plants and veggies? I can't find anything written about it. Thank you for your help! Tasha Stonorov Tstonorov@gmail.com

I have done this many times with no ill effect! This is safe and many people plant directly into their piles on purpose.
