On May 22, 2009, I took a photo of our first (and only) artichoke plant.  Here is a picture of it at about a month old.

As you can see from the post before this one, it's gotten huge this past year!  It seems to love its corner of the yard.  We ended up taking out the rose bush behind it, and I do have to circle it with snail bait powder once and awhile, but other than watering and the occasional fertilization, I don't do anything else with it.  This year already I've harvested about 15 artichokes.  Pretty good!
