Dig, Dag, Dug - DAHLIAS!

The last thing that HAS to be done in the garden, has been done.  Dahlias are not hardy and in upstate NY must be dug and stored in a cool dry place.  I usually can manage to keep them with a 75% success rate.

Above are the first tubers I dug up along with elephant ears at the top of the picture.  Last year I had no success with the pachydermus foliata (just made that up), but with tips from my friend, David, this year will be different. 

Now I need to bag, pack with Jim's top notch sawdust and hope for the best.
