One of my experiments this year is an attempt to grow artichokes. Starters were available at the farmer’s market in the spring so I figured if they were selling the little plants, somebody must be growing them. I bought two and put them in large pots by the driveway. Lo and behold, when I returned from my trip to Georgia and North Carolina, little artichokes were starting to form. Here’s what they look like now.
While I had the camera out, I took a couple of shots of the Shasta Daisies in the back. As you can tell, there are two different varieties. Both are enjoying the sunny weather.
