HOW COOL IS THAT??????!!!!! They look to be in good shape, too--hardly any bean-beetle damage. You did better than our farm! Bix and the Beanstalk! I had/have potatoes growing in my compost heap. So much fun. Also am looking forward to trying Jerusalem artichokes for the first time--but I'm "sposed" to wait till after the first frost (whenever the heck that will be) to start harvesting them. Makes them sweeter, I'm told.
lol. They're still there. I still haven't picked them! The colder weather is starting to ravage the leaves but they're still putting out new beans, almost overnight.How tall are your Jerusalem artichoke plants? Could I do them in a pot? I never had one. I'd love to try it in soup.
I planted the J. Artichokes in a raised bed. You probably could do them in a large, but heavy, pot, as they get about 8 ft. tall. Or tie the upright part of plants to a fence. But a farmer told me (I didn't know this) to cut off the flowering tops to put more strength into the roots & tubers. We shall see!
Pick those beans and parsteam, then freeze them. They'll still be good! Tasty!
8 ft! oh, what the hay. I'll try it, it'll be fun.
The J. artichokes also have beautiful yellow flowers that smell like chocolate!
