I can think of a word, Carri: beautiful.
How could they be boring? Artichoke have a simple elegance. For a vegetable at least ;)
Thanks ladies! I am oddly fascinated by our artichokes- they are all so different! And since it's my first year of them actually producing, I think I'm in the "honeymoon" phase with them!
Makin' me hongree!
I love the architectural quality of artichokes and you picked up on that SO beautifully! When the purple ones came out at our veggie stand I was swooning!
wow now that's something to aspire to in the future!
Great show of the artichoke. Unexpected, the first one. Matti
