In a homesteading class I took, I was told to chop first foot of the plant off when it starts to flower to keep the energy in root production.  But I thought the flowers would be important to the whole permaculture thing.

What say you?

Chop some, don't chop some, see what works! Experiment!
 
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
