Before Sarah, aka Supersprout, decided to leap from this mortal coil and onto the next, she sent me 3 lovely smooth Jerusalem Artichokes. She was very proud of them as they were so big and smooth. I planted them as soon as I received them, and shortly after Sarah left us all. I worried about the artichokes as they had to suffer some pretty cold weather for a spell, and then a long period of drought. But just look at Supersprout now. I have 3 handsome plants, all lush and green. They will have a permanent area on my allotment and the label that stands amongst them reads 'SUPERSPROUTS!'.
