And the award for the funkiest veg goes to…..!
A latergram from a visit to the wonderful store of #vreekenszaden, where by sheer force of will I did not but a single thing. (Something I regret now, because they had so many interesting seeds)

The ultimate: both this year’s best and last.
This flower is pale and frayed in comparison, but it just had to come home after I lifted the tubers for winter storage.

This year’s sweet potato harvest. Not as much as last year, when we had a bumper crop. It was a first for the ‘new’ cold frame, but we consider it a real success.

Things we learned from this year’s sweet potato experiment :
1) cold frame ❤️ sweet potato
2) harvest as many leaves as you can before frost hits. Blanche, freeze: greens all winter long.
3) the vines take root and then forms new slips. So that’s why we had 5 million sweet potatoes!

More tubers coming up. Literally. The Jerusalem artichoke is definitely trying to tell us to grab a choke or two.

Jerusalem artichoke in flower, and probably producing more tubers than we can imagine. So if anybody has a great recipe…

My mum shared some of these dahlia tubers with me. Can’t wait for them to bloom in my garden too !
