Artichoke city

Artichokes!Don’t they always say that you will not get any flowers on a first year artichoke? I thought so. Amazingly enough, we got three. Our healthiest looking plant has produced 3 artichoke blossoms in just a few weeks. We have planted our chokes directly in our sandy loam soil, surrounded by gopher baskets.  I feel like I have to water them incessantly to keep them from wilting but they seem pretty hardy.  We have 4 plants, all around the same size.  All of a sudden, one of the plants throws up this huge spike with an artichoke on it! Shortly after 2 more followed.  We have harvested and bbq’d them all now and they were pretty delicious.  Cant wait until next year to see what we get from the others:) BBQ artichokes
