Planted "Skorospelska" Sunchokes today that I got from Moose Tubers. Of the 3 pounds that came, one did not come in good shape, but I planted it anyway.

I was surprised to learn not many people know how to companion plant Sunchokes and was lead to believe it might be good to grow with rhubarb or corn, and that it truly is a Native American plant.

So I planted it as a windbreak in 2 places of my vegetable kitchen garden area that has my Seed of Life garden in the middle. Since I have another pound to plant, I am considering planting some with the corn, beans, squash, bee balm plantings.

I could go on and on about what else I did, but the funny thing of it all. I sat down around 5pm thinking of what to cook for dinner, and the next thing I know it was 7pm.

Hmm, still have twelve and a half pounds of various potatoes to plant still too.  They need to be Chitted, or green sprouted before planting.
