    Default Jerusalem Artichokes...WARNING!!!

    Word of warning...DON'T plant them where you don't want them to come back. I thought I'd got every little bit of mine out...I even sieved the soil...just in case, but alas I must have missed some, grrrrrr. The flipping things are growing in the middle of my raised bed in the broad beans.

    They do say, the only way to get rid of Jerusalem artichokes is to move house
