Artichokes in flower

Globe artichoke flowerI should have cut this off, but I didn’t have the heart. Besides, I’m kind of curious to see what it’s like. I’ve never seen a globe artichoke in flower.

I grew these from seed, and they’ve been surprisingly successful. They all got pretty big, and they’re obviously keen to form flowers.

I reckon next year I’ll get a great harvest. If the frosts don’t get ’em, that is.

A bloody big ‘if’.
