Hilling Potatoes with Straw

Wheat Rye Oat straw

How do you hill potatoes?  I started with yard/garden/kitchen mulch, progressed to bags of garden soil, now I’ve moved onto wheat/rye/oat straw.  Saw this on an online video.  Certainly less expensive than soil!

From what I understand, the potatoes don’t need more soil, just a place for the runners to grow potatoes out of the sun.  Hoping this will work!
