going native

there are still several jerusalem artichoke plants standing in one of the beds and while i was out there i dug one up just to see what was happening...what happened is that plant rendered thirty-four tubers which is a fair haul so i bagged them up and brought them home...after a soak in some cold water and a rinse they made a sinkful of fresh and crisp tubers...they store well in ground over the winter and there are still a few weeks to harvest them before they start to sprout for the new season ( another impetus to dig the tubers...they will over run the bed if allowed...i containerized them and put them in the refrigerator...there will be native cookery tomorrow as they become some sort of lunch.
