I have had this plant growing in my garden for about 30 years and i have no idea what it is. It has been slowly spreading with lots of roots that are very hard to remove. I have left it alone as it was under shrubs and looked fine but now the shrubs have died (old age) and I would like to grass this area over. Many times I have looked on the internet or asked people but have never found out what it is and how to get rid of it easily. Please does any one know what it is?

I planted mine in my allotment a few years ago and each year the patch grows larger. they could become a problem taking over a small garden. No need to earth up. they are from the sunflower family but you cook them like potatoes.Eat only a small amount at first as they do cause wind until you are used to them. My chickens like them and they are good in chutney and stir fries.

How do you store tom chutney...

I have frozen tomatoes and some time later made chutney and it was fine, there seemed no difference. I cooked them from frozen but needed to cook chutney a little longer as the water content must have been higher. I would love a recipe thread.  

Olive Trees

My Olive has just had its second winter in the ground. The man in the nursery said it was fine to leave in the ground over winter but I am not to sure. I have wrapped it up in fleece both years but each time it has lost leaves and looks thin and sad. Last year I resisted trimmig it and towards the end of the summer it had new small leaves . I wonder if it is getting enough heat to recover fully before the next winter.

Raspberries

I have two half sized allotments. My first one had over grown raspberries . I weeded them and watched them but after three years I gave up and dug them up as I was getting very small berries and not many. My second half allotment I took over last September with over grown raspberries, but this time they look nice and taste good.So I cut them down a few months ago .( I think they must be autumn fruiting)  Like yours they are full of couch grass. I plan to try to weed them but the weather has been so wet I have not been able to do much. I will give them one season then start again if no improvement. It seems a shame not to try. I have no real knowledge so am not saying try to keep them I just thought it might help to know you are not alone.
