Some started sprouting a few days ago. but all are now showing above ground. Took a little longer than I expected.

Decent yield. Did get hollow heart on the largest tubers, and likely would have seen it on more if I’d allowed the plants to grow longer. Might grow again, but there are lots of varieties to try.
