Have you tried growing Artichokes?
I LOVE Artichokes they are so good. When I came across an artichoke plant at my favorite nursery, I had to pause and think where can I plant this. This was when I had no idea how BIG an artichoke plant would grow. We had just moved into our house after 7 years of building. I didn’t have much landscaping at the time. So I thought I could plant it in front of my kitchen and move it later.
– How naive I was! 🙂
This is what happened! First year I had about 15 artichokes and they multiply each year. There was no way I was going to replant the roots are big. My only hope was to extract any offspring and transplant somewhere else. But let’s face it I was scared to remove any little plants. I thought I would kill them.
Then I saw this little plant over next to one of my Lilac plants and knew I had to remove it. I looked on the web and went for it. Within a day or two the 3 green leaves died. Great I killed it. I didn’t toss it right away and it was hidden behind some planters so the dogs wouldn’t get at it.
As I was moving some plants I came across my artichoke plant. It had new growth. I hadn’t killed it!
