I have to thank Sunny Wieler for sending me pics yesterday of one of the potato arches we built during the children's event at the dry stone festival in Amherst last month.
He cleverly titled the email - 'photatoes'.
He has a great camera and a good eye for potatoes doesn't he ?
You are quite right in assuming that it is not an easy thing to build arches with potatoes. Toothpicks were not allowed, nor were any of the potatoes cut or shaped. There really is no trick. You just need patience, lots of kids and the pressure of a crowd of parents watching.
