First Harvest of Jerusalem Artichokes

I had gone to the allotment with the hope of planting some onion sets. Instead I ended up pruning some of the large apple tree that was on the site of my plot long before it was an allotment . I also took the opportunity to remove the remaing apples and once home weighed them to find I had harvested 6.5 Kg  . I took the chance to harvest the first lot of Jerusalem artichokes obtaining 500gms from just one plant.
 As for the onion sets it looks like they'll have to wait for another day.

Christmas 2013

I have been very quiet lately whilst 'life' takes over . Anyway I have treated myself to a Kindle Fire tablet and currently downloading the relevant apps to allow me to hopefully keep this blog updated more often.
