I’ve left the Jerusalem artichokes in the ground too long. They have started to sprout no less. However, there are quite a number of tubers, which I am going to freeze, now that I have the new and bigger freezer.
The plan also is to fertilise the ground where they grow with the contents of the latest bokashi bin, ready on Monday next. I hope therefore that in spite of disturbing their bed today, they will have survived the onslaught.
On the other hand, I am definitely hoping that other vegetation round the garden won’t have survived today’s actions. This includes the thornless blackberry bush, which continues to reproduce itself with thorns around the Jerusalem artichoke bed. All being well, though, it seems to be lessening its hold.
