It's Good to be Home, Summer Artichokes

We're expecting a bumper crop of artichokes this year. I have four in the fridge waiting to be devoured.

Our trip to Burlington, Vermont was amazing. It was the first time Marc, Jonathan and I went on a mini-road trip and stayed at a hotel. We had so much fun and can't wait to go back in a few months when the fall foliage is at it's peak. We visited an amazing farm and took a long scenic drive through the Lake Champlain islands. I also remembered to take lots of pictures on this trip, which I'll post within the next couple of days.


  1. Really spectacular artichokes. I've never grown them. About how many buds do you get per plant?

  2. Never been to Vermont....looking foward to seeing those pics

  3. Oh thanks for the photo of the artichokes, I have never seen them growing before. I have some in the garden, but they are just teeny little seedlings yet. I hope they end up looking as fabulous as yours.

    Is there anything special you do for them?

  4. Beautiful artichokes Thomas! Welcome back and so glad to hear you had a great time together. :D
