Jerusalem Artichokes (2)

That's better. I leave it 'til this time of year to tidy the Jerusalem Artichoke haulm as the stems become very brittle and I can just kick them off at ground level and gather them up.
I've heard it said that they can be used as light stakes but I can't think of a job for which they wouldn't be too light!

The stems contain a spongy pith which makes peeling them very satisfying. When I make the page you should find more information about Jerusalem Artichokes here.
