Thankfully, the roots were much shallower this time.  I suspect we’ll need to dig them out a few more times before they’re gone for good.  We also found that blackberries are often associated with large jicama-like tubers, but the shoots don’t originate from them.  Damn, I should have taken some pictures of the tubers.  Any idea what they are?
