piano-doctor-lady: Thanks for the tip. I checked it on a few web sites. Interesting plant. I like that it attracts bees and is edible, plus doesn't look all that shabby. I haven't found it in Oklahoma, but I may get some seed to try it next year.
I used to grow a small three sister's garden almost every year. Small is just under 10x10, that's feet. I tried one year with something called cow cabbage instead of corn. Cow cabbage is from somewhere around Ireland. Edible, up to ten feet tall, large leaves, excellent for making canes. It was the canes that made me want to try it. I did't have luck. That year just about everything in Oklahoma 'burnt' up under the sun. This year is a lot like that year.
Are you a fan of the wild natives?
