Sun Chokes

Do you remember where you saw the wild sunflowers blooming in the summer?  Well I do!  I let them grow in my back yard and transferred some of the tubers to my garden.  They grow very tall so they make a good trellis for light weight plants that climb like peas.  Now in the winter it is time to treat yourself to the tubers that are right under the ground.  They look a little like deformed potatoes and can be fried like potatoes.  ( That is the way I like them best)  So if you miss having something to eat from the wild during the cold months dig some up!  I only dig a few each time as they are best
