Last week I visited my friend Topiary on the day she redesigned her garden. I wanted to bring her a yacon plant but didn't feel like haggling with airport security. I settled for showing her my wallet pictures: Here's Yacon when she was just a wee tuber, here's her at one month, here's what she made at harvest time...ah, I'm a gramma now! (I have a dozen or so yacon babies I have been gifting to friends).
For the record: my obsession began long before yacon became totally trendy, a foodie rage which I predict will grow over the coming year. Yacon is so in demand, it's now near impossible to order. This is why it's good to have farmer friends.
