|Jerusalem Artichokes. Nikon D7000|
There is something very satisfying about growing your own veg. Today, with only a minor rain shower in the morning, I took the opportunity of it being almost warm to plant some seeds and dig over the veg plot.
The last third of one of the beds has been home to a crop of Jerusalem Artichokes. They are a little unusual in that they had 3 metre long stems this year, but get a flower the size of a daisy on the top. The tubers grow profusely underground.
We have had a few feeds off them over the Winter, but given their propensity for inducing flatulence (often in comic proportions), they cannot be eaten at every meal.
I have now dug them all out so we will have to eat them. We have a carrier bag full to the brim. I think we may be raising the roof tonight :)
