How does Chinese Artichoke do for you?

I ordered and planted three 'slips' this year to see how they did. The plants survived in a pot and should provide me with some starter stock for planting out next year. I presume I just plant out the little tuber things in the spring? Do they need special storage over the winter or should I just leave them in their pot outside and plant them out later?

I haven't dug them yet, but I'm hoping that I have a decent number to expand my patch with.

Also, what would you recommend polyculture cropping them with? You mention bee balm, but that isn't an edible and I already have a decent patch of it in my herb garden.

Mike
 
What could go wrong in a swell place like "The Evil Eye"? Or with this tiny ad?
