Exline Permaculture Society begins June 11

First, my name is Doug Carlsten and my wife, Michele, who’s been writing this article is taking a break this week, so I’ll be taking over. We’ll be sharing the duty from time to time, so howdy! What a great privilege it is to be part of our “Little town with a big heart!”

I know that Michele has been bringing you a recipe each week, but I thought that since it is the season (rain and all) I might share a gardening tip instead. Have you ever tried planting Jerusalem Artichokes? They’re an easy to grow perennial related to sunflowers, so you don’t have to till the area, or replant every year! Hardy enough to take on our cold winters, they produce tubers just below the soil that resemble knobby new potatoes. They have a nutty crisp taste, are really low in calories and super high in iron. You can find many sources online to order the tubers, so give these perennial potato substitutes a try. Beware though, once started in the garden they can be hard to get rid of because you always seem to miss a few tubers when digging them up.

In other news, remember that the deadline for the first annual Miss Exline Contest is June 1. If you’re interested in competing, call Jodie McCoy at (641) 799-4450, Heather Heubner at (641) 895-3714 or Penny Sharp at (641) 658-2399. Don’t forget about entries for the 5k run or 1.5 mile walk (By the dawns early light), to be held on July 4. Registration must be done by June 15 to guarantee correct T-shirt size. You can also register by July 1 but shirt availability can’t be guaranteed. Register at the Exline store. Flea Market vendors are still wanted! You’ll be able to set up on the street on July 4 and it’s free! Contact Penny at the Exline store at (641) 658-2399.
