Multi-use Plants

We’re doubling some of our vegetable sales with flower bunches when available. Sunchokes produce a wonderful long-lasting cut daisy, so the plant produces two sources of revenue. The flowers and the roots. Chives and leeks are similar. People love to use the giant green star stems in contemporary¬†arrangements. Unless you’re collecting seed, it’s a nice way to expand the use of each plant.
