The #globeartichoke plants are looking good as they drink up the rain. #fromseed from @columbiariver - looking good aren't they, Laura? 👏👏👏 #gyo #cynarascolymus #cynarascolymusgreenglobe #southerncalifornia #california 16 January 2019

I ended up with a total of three plants, so I #planted two in the vegetable garden and potted one to give to G. Thank you for the seeds, Laura. 👏👏❤ #fromseed #artichoke #artichokeseed #gyo #globeartichoke @columbiariver

Laura, the #globeartichoke seeds have #sprouted ! Artichokes grow commercially here, so these should be very happy. Thank you! #artichoke #gifted #seedtrade2017 #giftfromcolumbiariver @columbiariver 03/14/2018

Hurray! That's so funny. Are the farmed one's ever allowed to bloom? That would be a beautiful sight.

No, Laura, not really. If they do bloom, it is because they were not picked and the field looks thrashed and ready to be plowed under. I will try to get a 📷 next time I see a field. @columbiariver

Just stay off of busy roads. No acrobatics either...

That is quite funny you say this, Laura, as when my sister took the photo I posted for you of the artichoke field, she crossed the highway, went down a hill, stood in mud and enjoyed every minute of the fun to get the best photos for you. She loves photography. ❤😂📷 @columbiariver
