I grew this! In Ohio! And there are more on the way! The community garden is going gangbusters.  So far, I’ve had beets, kale, cabbage, onions, tomatillos, cilantro in great volumes, and today, this artichoke was looking up at me. I’ve got a squash about a foot in diameter growing, and even the watermelon volunteers look great.

Of course, I’ve never seen an artichoke so fresh. The color is so much more vibrant than anything I’ve seen in the store. We’ve got to eat it today. It’s going to be part of lunch, with some red beet greens.
