eat local, grow local
I just love coincidences! Last Saturday Dave Richards gave a really interesting talk about permaculture at Minstead Study Centre. He illustrated his points with a brilliant range of slides and one of them showed some strange looking tubers that looked a little like Jerusalem Artichokes. When the audience was asked if anyone knew what they were someone called out Oca..... No I hadn't heard of them either..... When I got home afterwards I checked my emails and there was one entitled 'Oca'!
It was from Food Challenge member Anni Kelsey asking me if I wanted a few Oca tubers to try....
I gratefully accepted the offer and they arrived yesterday in the post.....see below
Anni kindly supplied me with a quick guide to their cultivation and I have found lots of info about these 'lost tubers of the Incas' on line....will keep everyone posted about how I get on but meanwhile does anyone have any experience with these veggies that they'd like to share?
