...or Not!

In the previous post I featured a photo of an artichoke. Well, just look how quickly she's growing now! Two babies flanking the main bud, and it looks like more may be on the way. My first ever home grown artichokes!

Do you have time for it to mature?
BTW--my trip to Denver to cool off was a bust. Hotter there than in Phoenix!

That's a good question! I've never grown one before, so I'm not sure how long it takes, nor what size this particular (unknown) variety is at maturity. I think I'll leave it go as long as possible, although my understanding is that artichoke buds can be eaten when very young.

Sorry about your trip to Denver. Yes, we just had our hottest weekend of the summer!! I hope you got to do some "cool" things during your visit, anyway...
