Artichoke Baby.

I just realized that I never showed y'all the first photo of my baby artichoke.  This was taken the day I looked down and was shocked to see that cute lil' baby choke peeking up at me.

I planted six seeds.  Four germinated enough to be re-planted.  And they all grew really well.

Until they didn't.  It looked as if three were dead.

But in reality, only one completely died.  One is tiny.  Two are small.  And one of the small plants has this baby.

I'm elated!

And this fall I will cut them down and cover with straw in hopes that they come back again, bigger and better, next spring.

But for now, I'm all kinds of silly excited about the tiniest veggie there ever was.

Have you ever grown artichokes?  Do you have any tips for me?  Like most things in my life, I'm pretty much just winging it.
