Jerusalem Artichokes (also Sunchoke) 24 Sep, Greta (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
I originally took free tubers left by a neighbour on the kerb. I planted five in a raised garden bed of one metre diameter. I've harvested about 5 kg of them! I've been giving them away, cooking & eating them, frozen the last batch as well. I call them fartichokes. They're a handsome plant with pretty flowers that don't appear until late summer.

Google growing them and go to the green harvest website.
Sunflower 17 Sep, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Read the notes here about when to plant, how long it takes from planting to harvest. Probably can grow in most places. Animals if hungry will probably eat them. How big the flower grows will depend on how well the plant grows to some extent.( And the variety) If first attempt at growing you probably have little chance at producing flowers on a certain date.

Rutabaga (also Swedes) 15 Sep, PATRICIA GRAHAM (Australia - arid climate)
We spend 6 months in Puerto Vallarta Mexico where daily temperatures are 75 - 85 F. and almost no rain, but mild humidity. They are impossible to buy and wonder if we could grow a few for ourselves. They do not seem to import them as they do apples. We really miss them in soups and stews.
