Kitchen Garden. Sunchokes and Chinese Radishes. 11.11.17
Green Luobo Chinese Radish. 11.11.17
Even though I don't do much in the vegetable beds, they continue to provide interesting crops for cool weather use. The Chinese Green Luobo Radishes, planted late summer, finally plumped up very nicely. The Jerusalem Artichokes / Sunchokes were growing in an out of the way spot. They were planted, I think, in 2014 and I gave up on them because either deer or rabbits ate the plants. This year two big Jerusalom Artichoke plants grew in that spot, and here is the harvest today from one of those. Tasty, crisp, a little peppery. Nice.
