My Baby Has A Baby.


Do you remember me showing y'all the photo of my baby artichoke a few weeks ago?

Well that baby 'choke is getting much bigger and she has a new baby buddy to keep her company!  I am now the proud farmer gardener of TWO baby artichokes!




To say I am impressed with myself is an understatement.  I all sorts of braggy!  I mean, no one else in my this isn't a competition but you know it totally is a competition community garden is growing them.  In fact, everyone says they didn't believe they could be grown this far north.  AND...I grew them from seed!  It's an accomplishment.  A small one.  I mean, I get it.  But still...it's not the sort of thing you see growing every day!

I don't know of anyone who grows them here, so congrats to you! What will you do with them when you harvest them?

Good for you, bragging rights deserved in my opinion!

I tried to grow artichokes in my FL Zone 10 garden and all I got was leaves. They are rather lovely, silvery gray and huge - I decided that going forward to use them as an accent plant in the garden but the local garden center (Home Depot) didn't stock them again or were out of stock.
