In the picture on the left and below, you see my Jerusalem artichokes(that's a mouthful, so I call them by their other name, Sunchokes). I dug up one plant to see how they did this year. I got a gallon bucket full from 1 plant! But I also got too eager, as they are not sweet enough yet. They need more frost to sweeten them up!
It was a really good garden year! I encourage anyone who doesn't garden to give it a try. It is pretty easy, and fresh food can't be beat. I get great satisfaction from knowing where my food comes from, and that I can feed my family during scary economic times.
