Angelo's letter was thought-provoking.  My thoughts now dwell on some 
much commoner plants than he mentioned.  Scarlet runner beans produce 
a big underground tuber. A little tour through the vegetable market 
reveals lots of tubers: potatoes, sweet potatoes, jicama, various 
Chinese roots - one is a Stachys I think.
