Not all Violet are as tasty as others, you are lucky you got one of the best.
Like day lilies & hasta, you can eat the whole plant.

The Bat house should work on night pest.

Ben Zumeta,
What Hardiness zone are you in, I am in South Carolina Zone 8a, I am wondering if tree collards/tree kale will over winter here.
Or if I should take cuttings every years & plant them out in spring like an annual?
Thanks for your post & photos.

"Has anyone played with Perennial Tree Collards?" Ed Lewis
No, but I Live South Carolina & I have had collards last four years & would have made it though August heat wave, but I did not water them & they died. I plant the kind that you pick the leaves & leave the stalk, with a few small leaves in the top like a rose blooms. I have picked fresh collards on the third of July for the fourth of July dinner.

"Multiplier or potato onions seem like they fit the bill."

I have a small nest onion, that is great for green onions & bulbs, because it is small it is easy to pickle with other vegetables.
The onion grows for ten months here, garlic, Jerusalem artichoke, green /French artichoke, collards all can live for many years in temperate climate.
