I found this online and while not quite what was asked for, it is 
interesting.  I let one plant grow in my garden where it is a sorta weed and 
it is now at least 2.5 feet across and I usually munch on some when I am 
watering.  Now I have some ideas how to use it in the kitchen too.  I see it 
being sold at the Marin Farmers Mkt so it is being used out there somehow.

sigh, here is the link
