Surprise– I have sunchokes to share
Normally I don’t share sunchokes until fall when the tubers are ready to harvest.
But I happen to have a few plants popping up in a spot where I’ve decided to plant something else this year, so they all have to find new homes.
I am offering the plants for free, but I don’t want to mail them. If you’d like one, you must arrange to pick it up at my house– I’m in the Eggertsville section of Amherst. You can come in person or send a friend who lives nearby.
Email me at email@example.com if you’re interested and we’ll make arrangements.
If you haven’t heard of them, sunchokes, also called Jerusalem artichokes, are the coolest plants ever. You can read more about sunchokes here.
Celery update: The plants are outside
In an earlier article, I told you how to start a celery plant using the leftover celery stump.
The problem I ran into was that I rooted the celery during winter and it too cold to move the plant outside. Even at my sunniest window, the plant died.
I started rooting some more stumps at the beginning of April. This weekend I transplanted them into a huge pot outside. I hope they will continue to grow. I’ll keep you posted.
I’ve also planted lettuce and spinach seeds in the container, so no matter what happens, I should get some vegetables.
Has anyone else tried starting celery plants from the stump? How is it working for you? Please leave a comment.
