So, artichokes are really thistles. Just big ones. And tasty ones. I had never seen an artichoke plant in person until I started working for Teresa. Turns out, those plants are huge! And really kind of pretty. I can definitely see them in my future as a gardener, right along with gooseberries. I love the gooseberry plants.
Anyway. Teresa was busy and finally let the artichoke flower. Have you ever seen an artichoke flower? It’s kind of amazing.
That is my hand for comparison. Giant flowers!
