digging tubers

busylizzy(z5 PA)September 29, 2007

First year for growing Dahlias from seed and had excellent results. First time entry for this division at PA largest fair and I came in 2nd place.

Now, I am hooked on Dahlias.

For digging tubers, do potato forks work well?

If I include this crop for small production area I can get a hold of a potato digger plow, so i was wondering how larger acreage is dug.

Yes, I use my potato fork to dig mine.
