Any reason not to plant sweet potatoes with jerusalem artichokes?
The way i figure it is they both have to be dug up come fall. The chokes can get tall and the potatoes can crawl all around them (i'd plant them on the front side so they get adequate light). Where i'm planting had a big pile of great, composted manure dumped 2 yrs ago so the ground is well prepared and full of good stuff. It's about 1/2 + 1/2 clay/sandy loam- very friable but with enough clay to keep it from drying too fast. It's pretty sunny back there- about 6-7 hrs a day, which is the best i have. It's bowl shaped and gets pretty hot- very little wind works its way back there. Thoughts?
