Hello, I'm more proud that I hadn't killed the plant over the last 8 months rather than having grown something weird. The Yam, Amorphophallus paeniifolius, apparently tastes like sweet potato. So half of it will go into a red curry and the half will be turned into chips (after a recommendation from Annette McFarlane). Anyone else got any recommendations for eating it?
Amazingly, the pot was full of earthworms which made this new gardener very happy and proud. But it was also full (15) of curl grubs - erk! They got mushed up into then lawn. I'm not too sure about those guys.
So, all in all, a little newbie success! Happy me.
