Last year, for the first time, I planted purple salsify. Its sometime moniker, the "vegetable oyster," teased me into ordering seeds. Although I'm not a big fan of oysters, I am a fan of growing as many varieties of vegetables as reasonably possible. And, once I grow them, I tend to like them (ground cherries excepted). Our salsify crop was meager, and I will try to grow more. One plant remains from last year.
