This artichoke had just about doubled in size so it was time to see if it tasted good.
This picture was taken on July 28th, so a month of fairly nice weather with a few sunny days really helped in it’s growth. But I didn’t take a picture of it when I cut it off.
It was too big to fit in our steamer so it had to be cut in half. The bowl it’s in is an 8 inch diameter bowl. Served with garlic butter, of course.
And my half, there is no way I could had eaten the whole thing. Damn my dinner looks healthy, steamed pak choi, courgette (zucchini), kale, french beans and broccoli. Hot source and a glass of water!! But what you cannot see is the plate of chips (french fries) which I admit I did take a few, and the gammon (butt ham) steak.
But the most important thing is, you can grow them here!! But it did take 2 YEARS to get some large ones… lol Damn I miss California..
