I know ... every year I show you photos of my artichokes. These plants are so amazing. I started with little two plants from my friend Jean. One didn't make it. The last couple years I had two plants ... and this year there are three! Here are photos just before I cut off the two largest artichokes.
I planted ten tomato plants a month ago (my reasoning is "something always happens ..."), as well as zucchini and cucumber plants. I have a few green tomatoes on almost every plant, so things are looking promising for BLTs and sharing tomatoes with friends.
