It may not look like much at the moment . . . and . . . this is the new Jerusalem artichoke bed. A friend gifted me with some surplus and, after checking with the Deva of the Garden about where to plant these, I dug up the soil in a fresh spot and planted. Just wait until next year when I will be able to see the cheerful flowers from the house window. And next fall I will have fresh Jerusalem artichokes to harvest.
We are now experiencing fall-like weather with wind and cooler temperatures. So I took a tour of the garden to see how plants are faring as they prepare for the winter season. I noticed the purple coneflower seed heads were ripe so I spread the seed in the new bed created this summer for them. Then I noticed the lizard. . .
The nasturtiums are doing well in the new cool hoop house bed. I’ve been eating an occasional leaf when I stop by.
