I have a soft spot for these, but not the space at the moment.
Have you tried the young leaves in salads?

They are annuals, but very fast growing annuals. They'll easily become nice bushy plants reaching five feet in a season.

At my old house, I used to plant them over the Tulips when they were through.
Three plants would give a really great display.
