Day 14 of 365 days in the community garden

Jerusalem artichoke rhizomes - related to sunflowers, these edible rhizomes are so easy to grow that you have to beware they don't become a weed in your garden! The best way to grow them is in a pot or a contained area because they spread!

"I could happily lean on a gate all the livelong day, chatting to passers-by about the wind and the rain. I do a lot of gate-leaning while I am supposed to be gardening; instead of hoeing, I lean on the gate, stare at the vegetable beds and ponder." Tom Hodgkinson 

Have a great day! Julia
