Yes, Jerry :)

Just came across these posts while searching about composting sweet potato vines. Glad to hear it is okay as I have a 'small' pile I am composting :-)

I am hoping I can find time to hack them up somehow and then run through a grinder with some (brown) leaves to help reduce the pile and have of course have it break down much more quickly.

I've put a lot of different kinds of vines in my compost including sweet potato. I normally pull them by hand and then just kind of dig them into my compost and chop them a little with my shovel. It is hot down here so most green material doesn't last long before it is compost.
