    You’ll have to wait until the plants are dormant – over winter sometime. They’re at early flowering stage at the moment.

    No need to wait for the JA’s, Snags… Plenty other things that Gut-Bacteria will convert to methane…
    Baked Beans… Cabbage… Brussell Sprouts… Not forgetting Beer…

    I have some smallish but viable Jerusalem artichokes that I am willing to swap (they are very hardy & survive a central Victorian summer with no watering, but as a result of little water and food they are re not big). Interested in all things edible – seed, cuttings, scion, tubers etc. as a swap.

    I was at the farmers market last weekend – & reminded me of this discussion.  They’re available everywhere now.

    Hi,
    Thanks for all the replies, sorry haven’t been able to get back to you. This year has been all about rebuilding the property/garden after the SA fires. So starting with the basic fruits and veggies first. I have started noticing them around places though and discovered both diggers and greenfeast stock them too.
    Thanks
