Actually, I am expecting my first dahlia harvest this fall.  My mom and the ladies of the neighborhood have been enjoying the process of my raising the tubers for the table....

I understand Dahlias are very tasty root veggies as well. You might want to add them to your list. They also look nice in the garden.

Do you cook yacon?  I think of it as a raw veg.

  Those of you who like sunchokes may also want to try
  yacon.  A relative of sunchoke that is substantially more productive, it
  does not tolerate freezing and thus cannot be invasive in colder
  climates.  While opinions vary, I much prefer the taste of yacon over
  sunchoke, although both are good.  I pull up volunteer sunchoke plants
  in my garden but plant yacon every year. An easy, highly productive plant
  here in zone 5, unbothered by disease or insects.

  

  I usually have a few extra plants left over in the spring, for those that
  might want to give it a try.  Please contact me in late may if
  intersted.

  

  John

  I'm being unclear.  What I'm saying is chokes
  colonized the area to

  the extent that not even reed canary grass will compete.  I have them

  planted in a lot of places & think it's a good low input / high output

  plant even tho I only manage to eat them a couple times a year.
