yacon progress

it has been a slow season for us Colorado gardeners. a very wet May has made harvests slower, crop yields not as bountiful. but still our gardens thrive through attentive love.

this was my first year attempting to cultivate yacon root, a delicious tuber I use in our restore tea. It is quite hard to find in North America, being native to Peru and other regions in South America. even though our season has been slow, my beautiful yacon plants are starting to bloom and beneath our soil are producing many tubers for me to harvest come the colder season. I can't wait to share the bounty.
