Earlier this year I bought a couple of artichoke starts at the farmer’s market just to see what they would do. Well, they actually grew and produced several chokes on each plant. Here are some photos of the result.
I probably waited a little too long to harvest them but yesterday was the day. The following photos show some interesting shapes and textures.
Apparently humans aren’t the only species that appreciate the finer qualities of artichokes.
And finally, one I left on the stalk is going to seed.
Tonight we’ll find out how they actually taste.
