I read that they were prone to spread and hard to get rid of, so I wanted to plant them in a container. I had a big plastic water trough
that was no longer usable as a water trough, after an unfortunate encounter with a tank heater that failed to shut off and melted a hole through the bottom
which made it usable as a planter. I dug a hole for it, though it might have been smarter not to. I might want to move it later, if it turns out not to be a good spot. I filled it with sticks, which will absorb water and hold it in the root zone, and also open up the soil to help the roots breathe. I don't know whether wood does that better than compost, but I had a lot of sticks.
This is my compost screen. I'm using it to filter out perennial weeds: grass, bluebells, dandelions, bindweed. There will still be perennial weeds in the soil, but I'm giving myself a head start.
This is a pound of Jerusalem artichoke tubers, right before I pushed them four inches under the soil. They're a little crowded here, so I kept back four for my husband's garden.
And a picture of my dogs just because:
