A November Surprise

Postby Sharon Bryson » Nov 19, 2008 12:07 pm

We were quite surprised to see an artichoke on one of our two plants, just last week.
I had pretty low expectations, so hadn't paid much attention for quite some time.

The plants just about blew out of the ground during Sunday's windstorm.
The little veggie has been cut, and I guess we will cook it and see how wonderful it is! Not sure I know the best approach!
