third cull

some denizens of the garden laugh at frost...jerusalem artichokes for instance...more rouges have appeared ( top photo ) so i set about digging them out..this is the third cull and these forty-six ( second photo ) bring the total of rooting sunchokes removed from the bed to one hundred and fifty-two...not a worlds record, but some indication of how prolific these plants are and how difficult it is to find all the tubers at harvest...this is why they are classified as invasive...the third photo is of the cold hardy garlic backed by winter rye ( and, if you look closely, winter vetch )...the fourth photo is of winter rye and new zealand white clover and the last is of some young turnips that brushed off the frost and carried on
