The potato planters also got a thick layer of grass clipping. About 6 inckes thick. That is on top of a few inches of aged maple leaf mulch.
Mulch also went into some flower borders and around shrubs. I view cutting the grass more as a harvest of quality organic mulch, than as grooming.
We recovered these sunchokes from Ning's meadow. He planted them there last year when I was in surgery. They didn't do so well there. I found 3 of the plants. We ate chokes from one, and I moved the others to this location. With some added organic nitrogen, and lots of mulch, they are flourishing. The shorter plant is shorter due to local herbivores. The taller had a screen. The herbivores seem to ignore them now. Although they like to surprise me.
