Is it too late for me to plant my Dahlia's? We have had so much rain I just didn't want to take a chance of rotting the bulbs. Yes, that much rain. Anyhow's can I plant them now and get a bumper crop or should I just wait till next year

Yea! I say go for it. You have that dahlia magic, being in the Pacific NW. I bet you'll get plenty of blooms before winter.

Nope, no rain today so I am going to get them in the ground. I have a good friend that has been newly diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and I am going to be spending the morning with her. She is getting her new wig today and wants me to be there to help arrange it on her.
I have made her several hats but she is looking forward to some hair again.
So bulb, tubers, may have to wait till later this afternoon. Priorities
