Dahlia Dig 2013

Nothing like the gift of time and muscle power during the late Fall season to spend the day digging over 200 plants of dahlia tubers, washing, putting in trays and hauling to the storage shed to winter over for spring.  I can hardly wait for spring 2014 to arrive so they can participate in the "Planting Party" to put them back in the ground, plus the extra 50 + new tubers I have on order to arrive in March!!!
