Wow, Jim, sounds like I could have written that.  My experiences are the ==
same, the end product being a pot of stinky mush.  I always assumed my =
pots simply got too hot, things seem much better this year - in the =
ground.

John, where are you?

and it's likely to have softened a bit.

I've no idea why this happens, but have wondered about the possibility ==
of some non-visible damage to the tuber in the shipping process that =
still allows for the first year's growth to occur but then proves fatal. ==
Unfortunately, that's been what's happened to at least 50% of my =
acquisitions from certain sources.
