Also known as Jerusalem Artichoke. Despite its common name this marvelous plant has no connection with Jerusalem... or artichokes! Native to North America, it has long been cultivated by indigenous gardeners all across the east.

A perennial sunflower relative, they grow to 6-8 feet and are topped with yellow flowers in September. The tubers mature in October, and can be dug at any time, or left in the ground to be dug in the winter or early Spring. They don't store as well as other root crops, so I like to simply dig them as I need them.

Sunchokes are extremely hardy, and thrive in almost any garden conditions. The only places they won't enjoy are deep shade or permanently wet soil. They will re-sprout from small pieces of tuber, and are difficult to remove once established. Choose your site carefully! Smothering for a season with landscape fabric is the best way to remove unwanted plants. That said, a well situated patch can yield tons of food, with almost no care.

Clearwater is a variety from Will Bonsall's extensive collection in Maine. Their tubers are less knobbly than most varieties, making them easier to chop and prepare. Will discovered this one growing in the garden of a neighbour, near Clearwater Pond.

French Shallots - Annapolis Seeds
French Shallots (out of stock)

Allium cepa var. aggregatum - An excellent keeper with red skins. French Shallots are the onion of choice at Yonder Hill Farm. Hardy and drought resistant, they always out-yield regular onions on their homestead. They grow into small-medium sized bulbs the first year from seed. In subsequent years, the bulbs can be planted like garlic in the fall, they'll grow into full clusters the following summer. From seed, grow them just like onions.

Hollow Crown Parsnip
Hollow Crown Parsnip
Price: $3.00

One of the oldest heirloom varieties of parsnip, hollow crown is still hard to beat. Classically sweet and mild nutty flavour and robust, long white roots. While it takes a long season to grow parsnips, they are relatively care free once plants are bigger than the surrounding weeds and thinned to 3 inches apart. We like to leave most of them in the ground until late winter/early spring, then dig them up to enjoy their extra sweet flavour. 100+ seeds (1 g.)
