Brian - see if you can find out what cultivar she's growing and maybe grab some seed or a tuber to trial at your site.
I would be happy to test them for heat tolerance, here, in North Central Texas.

I'm currently growing several kinds of roots and tubers; Radish, Turnip, Carrot, Sweet Potato, Jerusalem Artichoke. The other staple crop that did well for me this year is Winter Squash; I seem to have two varieties; Tatume and something I don't know the name of that makes large oblong fruits. These fruits are too large for just the two of us to consume in a short period, so I'll have to figure out how to preserve them, probably by freezing the pulp.

I also don't like pills much. They're a last resort for when they're warranted.
I've got some corkscrew willow that I'm told is one of several kinds of willow I can make tea out of to get the salacin. I'm thinking about mixing that with green tea for the caffeine. Does anyone know if that combination is safe? I expect it is, but best to ask.
Also, do i use the green smooth bark of younger growth or the greyish woody bark of older growth? The partway between kind?
