Okay okay I know they're affectionately known as Fartichokes but bloody hell! Jerusalem Artichokes really lived up to and beyond their reputation. Having not eaten them before we were looking forward to this slightly nutty, potatoey, if a little bit windy treat. First off I burnt them a little bit and they had a funny aftertaste. After a few parps on the sofa I though Hmmm thats not so bad...
OMG that night I nearly blew myself out of bed - and with the gales raging outside and trees and fences blowing down all around, not much sleep was occuring in this house. Not sure about Mr B yet.... I think he was unaffected... normally he is a bit delicate. Maybe he was just suffocating :o)
Thank god the chokes are in the top allotment which isnt mine now! As I've been told the only way to get rid of them is to move.
All in all a bit windy round here! EEEEK :o(
