The arrow root tuber (rhizome?) that Josh Jamison gave me at Andy's has grown like crazy in a 1/3 barrel Water Wise Container Garden this summer even though I planted it late...it became a tall, wide, very lush, tropical looking plant.....since fall is in the air I just fished around in the soil with my hand and found my first harvest. I'll try a slice raw but figure I'll need to simmer it a while to get off the tough outer scales I've read about. To me it looks a little immature....I'll wait a few weeks before trying to find others.

The bottom pic is the rhizome that Josh gave me.
