Music 21: Jerusalem artichokes

21jartichokes

I love Jerusalem Artichokes, not only the vegetable, but the plant!

This relation of the sunflower (it’s neither an artichoke nor from Jerusalem) grows ten feet tall in a season. The lovely yellow flowers attract lots of butterflies.

They are such a happy plant! I always grow them.

      You don’t – you eat the flower heads before they open! WHOOPS! I thought we were talking about Globe Artichokes. In these you eat the roots in winter when the stems have died down!
