A 'Spudding' Art Form


At the Amherst Island Irish-Canadian Dry Stone Festival last weekend we got to experiment building spud walls. These were no small potatoes. And there were a lot of them too. 

We purchased two tons of them from Tupling Farms near Shelburne Ontario. The children from the island built walls, forts, boats and pyramids. The nice thing is that building with potatoes is not just a whole lot of fun, it's safe.




Here are two big kids taking a break from working with stones to play with 'tatties'

This was our first potato sheepfold. 



This was the firstarch of several we built on Saturday.  Starch… get it?
