Artichoke in the raw

  1. They’re awesome. I really should try to grow them. Maybe next year. My kids are crazy for them. Wish they weren’t so stinking expensive. We usually steam them and just eat them with some garlic and butter. They go fast though. It’s like a competition.

    1. That’s the way I like ’em. Don’t want to hide them in something else that covers up their yumminess (theirs and the butter’s). Yes, I regretted introducing my son to them so early. He wouldn’t eat most veggies but he loved artichoke. Naturally. He was holding out for the expensive stuff.

      Are they easy or hard to grow? I have no idea.

  2. Interesting photo. Love those colors together. Think how delightful it’d be to have a dining room decorated in those colors while eating an artichoke dipped in garlic butter. Now there’s a goal for you!

... and that's my two cents
