      Butterfly Puddler. Make your own butterfly puddler by filling a small bowl, dish or flower pot bottom with sand. Add water until the sand is soggy. Make sure the bowl is at least 16″ wide or you will be adding water to it often as it evaporates. The larger size will also allow for more butterflies. Add a tbsp of composted manure or mushroom compost to the sand Add river stones as well as some flat surfaces such as clam shells for the butterflies to sun bathe on.

    make the wire cage, line the bottom with about 3 inches of straw then keeping straw around the edges add about 4 inches of compost then your seed potatoes eyes up. cover with a few inches of compost. as the plants grow cover the bottom 1/3 of the plant with compost (hilling it up). Potatoes don't grow down from the seed potatoes, they grow above them. So the taller your potato plant grows, the deeper you can hill the soil, the more potatoes you get. continue until the potato flowers and then the plant wilts give it a week or so then dump it all out and find your potatoes.
