Transplanting the Yacon

We have had so much rain this year.The Yacon can no longer live in a container.
It fell over and uprooted. So I prepared the area behind the potato garden. I will add a video. I took half the soil it was already in mixed it with 1/2 a bag of topsoil. Added some composted manure.Then planted this on top of the ground.This plant can not take much more confinement. Planting like this is a no dig way to let the plant grow at what level it wishes.All the roots high.Or it can shoot roots and tubers deep. We will see in Aug or Sept. When the plant decides it is time to harvest.

Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.Photobucket
