An Artifact Spot (also known as "worms", "stems", or "twigs") is a tile found in places where the ground can be tilled with a Hoe. It has a chance to drop Artifacts, Lost Books, Mixed Seeds, Stone, Copper Ore, Gold Ore, or Clay when tilled. They are much more common in Winter, when they may also drop Snow Yams or Winter Roots.
- Although many players call them "worms," Artifact Spot is the name found in the game code.
- If players do not use their hoe on an artifact spot, it has a chance to respawn in the same place the next day.
- On rainy days the artifact spots will be dry when hoed, whereas other tillable soil would be wet.
- An episode of Livin' Off The Land describes them as "little brown stems":
