Artichokes


We returned from our two week vacation (where I fretted about leaving our vegetable garden with only a 3 day a week, 30 minute watering from the drip hose) to find our artichoke plant had obviously doubled in size and gave us a bunch of new artichokes.  When we left, we examined all the plants carefully to see where they were "at".  The artichoke plant had one baby artichoke on it, that was it.

We returned to find at least 8 of them. I cut a bunch off and cooked them today.  Great for dinner tonight!

Here is a photo of them in a nice bowl from yesterday.  Awesome, aren't they?
