Spring is such an exciting time – and I’ve never felt it so much as this year. Jerusalem artichokes being a new venture for me, I was curious to find out both how long they would take to sprout and what the plants would look like when they arrived. And here they are.
I can’t believe how quickly the shoots have grown. It has only been a matter of a month since I planted them but this is about 7 inches of growth altogether considering the depth the tubers were planted at.
The next thing I want to see is the flowers – how like sunflowers are they going to be?
