More Artichokes

After three unsuccessful attempts to grow artichokes, our current plants are doing great. We harvested our first artichoke about a week ago and grilled it. Since then, two more chokes have grown.

And in another planter....another artichoke rears its head. This one already has ants claiming squatter rights, however. I don't have a high success rate battling ants and aphids. I will try again for the sake of the artichoke.


  1. 1T of Dr. Bronner's castile soap in a quart of water, sprayed all over the buds, did a pretty good job of protecting my 'chokes this year.

  2. I've got it in the spray bottle. En garde, aphids!
