Seedling is finally starting to shoot up! This one was started with the last seed I could find in my stuff and it was a wimpy looking little seed. So I have to say I'm pretty pleased. Should have a flower by August...I hope! 7.3.18 #artichoke #fromseed #growbabygrow
These are most of the artichoke pups that the mother plant put out and these are doing great. She's still making more pups. I really don't know how we're going to keep them over for months tho! Cart before the old Grey mare again. Learning by doing!
The soil I planted in is very soft. It has decayed wood chip compost from my chicken coop with some store bought soil mix. Its in my little raised bed. I had never grown them before so its all new to me too. If you grow in full sun with some soft rich soil you should have no problem. I've noticed now that my plant is giving me a pup! I'll get a pic up of how its growing up beside mother plant. They've been nothing but a joy. I watered some too @pat2356
Never saw the blooms before. Always got them to eat. Beautiful 🤗. I am fresh out of the hospital. Had a 2 1/2 days stay. Lots of tests with no finding out anything. But the Dr. uped my restless leg medicine and I have been doing nothing but sleeping. Since I haven't had much sleep in months it feels good. Read somewhere u are out of fire danger. So glad. I am sure u will love the rain. Stay well.🤗😘
This is top of my list to do next year. Third one is opening now. It was a huge compliment to me when hubby said that we " sure do have a lot of bees this year"! #beeheaven #bees #savethebees #artichoke
Thank you! This has gone beyond the harvest stage. Its going full bore into blooming! Fun one to grow. Just dont stick your finger in it because those tiny needles hurt 👍😁@bpetty55 @KariSamuel @Soph1e @susanhumphrey333 @cyndi I'm putting another pic up
