This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

dahlia tubers dug

dahlia tubers

Since Daphne said it was as late as I could wait, I went out today and dug the dahlia tubers. They look good - big fat roots. They are now in a bag hanging on the hook in the basement where they always spend the winter.

The sad thing is that I had dalias last year and never dug them up. Whoops! This year I was dahlia free. BTW some of the weathermen are saying we will get to the teens this week. Ack! I'm sure the ground will be frozen solid soon.

Daphne I'm shocked!! About your dahlias. I'm going to ignore the weather part. The snow is pretty, but I prefer warm snow.
