    Country folks used to store sweet potatoes in hills. They would dig a shallow hole, put hay in the bottom, put a layer of sweet potatoes, more straw, more sweet potatoes until they made a hill. Then they would cover it with dirt. The sweet potatoes would keep all winter. They got sweeter and juicer as they stayed there. I tried to find a picture of one but couldn't find one. Apparently, nobody ever took one.

    Here is an old Idaho picture with hay being put into the stacks.

    What a fantastic picture, Yvonne. I feel like I'm standing right there in the field!

    I was intrigued by the above, so looked it up
    People go hiking to the Bothy which is quite picturesque then they find the stone cottage where they can stay for free
    overnight, pretty basic - but better than a tent :)
