    if potatoes self-seed, are they safe to eat?

    I live in a temperate climate with defined seasons

    of course.... they are safe to eat. however, if they have gone black and has moles on them then you have to throw them away.

    When I was in Ontario I always had a garden where I left the unused potatoes in the ground over the winter. Next year they retook. I did this for 5 straight years and NEVER had a problem, a few self seeded, but don't eat them raw, cuz the taste is different.

    Yes, no problem at all.
    Just don't eat them if they turn green. Green potatoes are poisonous. They turn green if they are not completely covered by soil.
