Artichoke Check In

February 5, 2013

For a change, I was home this evening in time to do a walk through while it was still fairly light.

Time to check in on the artichoke in the hoophouse and see how it handled the hard freezes last week.

I pulled back the row cover that has been an extra layer of insulation for most of the winter and was pleased to find that the plant appears to be healthy and damage free. So maybe we will get some ‘chokes this spring after all…..

    Artichokes are such beautiful plants, too bad they’re such space hogs or I’d have a heap of them. I’m too stingy with space and want plants I can rip out and replace with the next season’s crop.

    Our dad used to say that artichokes are really just a substrate for mayonnaise — as he went through a half-head like an Indian dispatching a buffalo.

    It’s looking good. I’m making a vegetable tart for our foyer group this month that has marinated artichokes in it. First time I’ve tried it. Don’t know how it will taste. Looks good in the picture. Mawi
