I looked out my bedroom window today, and was in awe at this view. I could literally reach out and grab some artichokes. What’s even more amazing is that these are first year chokes…..and if you know anything about artichokes, they are not supposed to produce until year two! I’m enjoying the heck out of them this year, and cannot imagine what next year will look like.
Whenever I bring in a couple of artichokes for dinner, I always count the ones I see that just sprouted. I use these counts for bragging rights to my wife. 🙂
When the plants first started producing, I would bring in 2 and say, I see 3 more!
The next time I would bring in 2 and say, I see 8 more!
Last week, I brought in 2 and said, I see 25 more!
Today I brought in 2 and said, I see 31 more!
And to think it all started with some worms.
