Last but not least thanks to everyone who helped dig the Demonstration Garden Tubers on November 14th. We had a nice day to get that job done. The plants were divided between Sandy, Mark, Stephan and Karen to process. Thanks to Megan and Ryan and Julie for storing many of the tubers.
Fingers crossed for success next spring!
