See the caladium fields in the background behind the wash barn?
The washer. Here, the bulbs are washed and preliminarily graded by size. The people standing around each of the conveyor belts are pulling off clods of muck, weeds and bulbs that are the wrong size. 
The stacks of trays of wet bulbs will be taken by truck to our packing house and put into the drying rooms.
Wet Caladium bulbs right off the washer. The white things are roots which will dry up and look like hairs by the time they’re ready to be shipped.
Trailers of bulbs waiting to be washed.
The harvest has started. Since it’s been warm, the caladiums in the fields are still growing. For this reason, we have to mow off the tops before digging the bulbs. This photo shows the bulbs coming up on the digger. 

See the white roots on the bulbs?  After the bulbs dry in the drying rooms, these roots will look like brown “hairs” on the bulbs.  The early harvested bulbs air more “hairy” because we are digging when the bulbs are still actively growing. Once we get cold nights and days, the bulbs will go dormant and then not be as rooty/hairy.  
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
We’re taking orders now for spring shipping.
