what to do with mushy tuber from an order
For those of you that buy thru mail-order, what do you do
I had ordered tubers for the first time this year - from two different vendors on the west coast- did it back in December They were small orders - 8-10 from each. I did delay planting for about 45 days but had checked both orders when I got them and they were ok, packed in shavings
When planting, 3 tubers (all three same kind) in one order were mushy. After planting, 1 tuber in the other order rotted out at the end.
I didn't tell the vendors - felt funny - my thoughts were sortof 'buyer beware'. And while I don't want to think that I will lose $3-$5 in each order, I just feel odd about doing it.
What do you all do? Tell the vendor? Do you expect or get replacement?
