It's quiet, easy work that you can turn into a business if you would like to for little to no investment, and work as much or as little as you like. You work at home, and while it takes some time to start generating income, the actual time spent working is minimal. You have lots of "leisure" time while you are waiting for things to grow, or sprout, or develop roots, so you can work or play at other things. Marketing is very simple. A free Craigslist ad or a few signs on the street are as much advertising as you need to get started. Everything about the business can be expanded if you wish. You make your own hours, and you can have your dogs around for company while you work :)

Now that it seems possible to winter over the roots I'm not so concerned with seed although I would like to see the flower and seed pod.
Are you harvesting lots to eat? We love the fresh leaves chopped in all sorts of things. I tried some commercial powdered stuff when we didn't have fresh leaves and we did not like the flavor at all.
