arty chokes

A couple different varieties of artichoke (seeds from Italy) planted last summer have morphed into six-foot high and wide plants producing copious fruit, tasty and beautiful.

Our artichoke window is narrow (3-4 weeks) but a typical plant will produce a couple dozen artichokes before deciding that this is, in fact, not Castroville, and begin rapidly to fade.
