Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Yacon harvest
« on: December 23, 2018, 03:32:13 PM »
Instead of pulling up all my yacon plants, planting the rhizomes and harvesting all the tubers, I'm now just harvesting tubers on demand and leaving the plants to grow more.  Seems much more time efficient that way.

I harvested this big guy that was coming up from the ground, today.
