jerusalem_artichokesToday A-girl and I dug up the Jerusalem Artichokes from the hugelkultur bed next to the driveway.
I planted fewer than 10 small pieces in this bed and posted progress back in September when a heavy rain caused some of the plants to fall over. In response to the collapse, I had cut the sunchokes to almost half their height and left them that way, instead of stomping down the stems at ground level. The tubers I dug up today were plump and healthy looking! Every so often I found one that had been munched on by something, but these were the good ones, so there was plenty to share!

  1. That is great, JerseyShoreLisa! How long do you think that five gallon bucket will last y’all? How do you plan on storing them?
