Kids and potatoes: An endearing pictorial

Dear folks, during the course of the many hours I spend each day of the week scouring the Internet – and other sources – in search of sensible potato related information to share with you here on Potato News Today, I often come across some endearing photos and stories of kids and their ‘relationship’ with potatoes. I wish to share just a handful of these with you here – in the hope that you might appreciate the pictures as much as I do? As the expression goes – a picture often speaks a thousand words…

Cover photo: Sincere thanks to Evelyn Backhouse in the UK (and thanks to her Dad, Luke Backhouse for sending it to us for publication here – with Evelyn’s kind permission, of course).
