Jerusalem artichokes

The view from my bed :-)  We've planted sunflowers along this fence in the past but this year chose their cousins, Jerusalem artichokes, instead.   Letters from Wetville made me think they might do well in our heavy clay soil, and I was excited by the prospect of beautiful flowers and edible tubers from the one plant.  We've both been surprised by just how lovely they are and how nice it is to have such an abundance of flowers, rather than one per plant like we got from our giant sunflowers.
