Artichoke update

This is one of my over-wintered artichokes. It looks like it usually looks in late JULY !!! Seeing these is a source of daily satisfaction this spring. I have been keeping them well watered and each week have given them a good dose of manure tea. With this much of a head start on the season, I want to milk these plants for all they are worth.

Wow! Congrats Leslie. I'm sure you'll get a ton of artichokes this year.

Artichokes always remind me of visits to Mount Vernon. George Washington has these growing throughout his garden.
