At Last, an Artichoke!
I planted this artichoke last summer. What a huge, gorgeous, spiky plant. Really, if you have a sunny ornamental bed, this is the perfect plant to begin integrating edibles with.
So far, it's been a tough plant too -- living in heavy clay, highly alkaline soil, surviving a drought, freezes, and a hail storm.
And now, at last, a delicious, edible flower is forming.
