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!'.

EJ, reading your post brought a tear to my eye. So pleased that Supersprout is looking so lush and green. It's nice that you have something to remember her by.

Hi EJ, I've also got some Jerusalem artichoke that SS sent me and they're looking good!! I wish I'd got to know her better, I was still too new on a4all website when she sadly passed away. She sent me some wonderful printed info sheets on J.artichoke that she had obviously prepared for novices like me!!! Obviously a wonderful Lady who I'm sure is very sadly missed.

Leonie, I still think of Sarah. The first PM in my a4all inbox is one of the last ones she sent to me.
Glosterwomble, she was a great person with so much energy and goodwill which she shared unselfishly.
Lots of people received the artichokes from her, so Supersprout spread herself far and wide!!
