    I must give credit to the farmaer who grew that yam and the most challenging fact is to extract it from the ground you have to fallow the growth pattern of the yam ,or els you will cut it or damageit before to escavate it from the ground wonderfull picture , and thanks to the farmer he deserve a reward for the fruit of his labour. thanks dominic am your native son.
