Hi Kate so they break the wind twice then.

It's very easier to grow them than to get rid of them.

talk about wind we went to look at some new houses yesterday and in front of the show house 3 trees newly planted had blown over and 2 fence panels had come out as well,I think it may be time to look else where.

I found they did well even in shade infact historically they were planted in places that were no good for other crops, the only difference was the tubers were a little smaller, they are so very easy to crop and just a few bits thrown back made them come back each year. I've heard they are hard to get rid off but apart from the farting i love em. although early medieval writers were more scathing on the subject.

"which way soever they be dressed and eaten, they stir and cause a
filthy loathsome stinking wind within the body, thereby causing the
belly to be pained and tormented, and are a meat more fit for swine
than men."
