Artichokes--the curious plant. In this photo you can see the places I have harvested artichoke buds by the brownish color left behind. Here are two new buds growing very close to where I cut one out on Sunday. It is like the Disney film, Sorcerer's Apprentice. Everytime you harvest one, two grow in its place. Soon I will be overrun with artichokes. Not that I am complaining.
