The Jerusalem artichokes are about 8ft tall, and still growing. I’m told they’ll flower soon, but I’m not holding my breath: the UK weather has been beyond awful. Even by our low, low standards.
To be honest, I don’t know when to harvest them, or how to know they’re ready. Never grown them before.
Anyone out there got any top fartichoke expertise to guide me?
(PS Any hints for reducing the wind effect would also be most welcome. It’s like castor oil without the follow-through.)
