First artichokes

So excited - first artichokes ever. Planted an artichoke plant along with the new landscaping out front just 3 months ago (I think although time means nothing these days) and I'm rewarded with 2 artichokes already. I'm going to let them flower.


  1. WOW! Impressive! I’ve never seen an artichoke ‘in the wild’ before. Had no idea what the plant looked like, or what the artichoke itself looked like on the stalk. Please provide a photo of the flowers when it gets to that point.

  2. Peg, I had never seen what they looked like until a few years ago when I saw them in someone's yard. If I remember correctly when it flowers it looks like a thistle, maybe even lavender colored. Yes, I will get a picture of it when that happens.


I love your comments - thank you!
