jerusalem artichokes ( relentless )

i have an affinity for root crops...i like to eat them but even if i didn't i'd want to grow them...and there is a special place for tubers...and there will be tubers this season in abundance...from the bewildering number and variety of andean tubers ( there are potatoes and mashua in this garden ) to the relentless native sunchokes they are a perennial favorite..the jeruasalem artichokes have vindicated my prediction with four day to spare...a burst of rainfall and warm weather saved me from the embarrassment of a public misstep...they are green, leafy, and growing daily...can't wait for the blooms...even more impatient for the tubers.
