Sleep Tight...

     On Saturday, November 24 we had a record for members coming out to help with the demonstration garden tuber dig.  Mark led the charge with Steve, Megan, Karen, Cheri, Sandy, Spencer, Janet, Elizabeth, Dave and Dick making a tough job easy.  With many hands at work we were able to dig, wash and divide the tubers in unseasonably nice weather.  
     On Tuesday, November 27 we labeled all the tubers and wrapped them in plastic wrap for their winter's sleep.  We have high hopes that we will have lots of tubers in the spring.
     Good luck to everyone for successful tuber storage!

*Even though we had lots of tubers there were fewer than in years past.  We are having soil tests done to make sure we don't have a problem.
