Well dug up a few more today. Two were Great looked good are now under the house for a couple days
of drying before they get put up in peat.. The other three from two weeks ago also look good.

But,dug up one that was total mush and another that had a bunch of mushey parts. So I cut them off and
hopefully it will make it ..

Still have four or five more that are still semi green on leaves. Can I pull them up ? I am afraid of looseing them
to mush I have had them a long time .

Lovey dubby

Are you moving soon? You can pot them up and sink them in the garden if you want. That way they will be ready to go when you move. Smiling
