Bye Bye Artichokes

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The artichokes were tilled in today. The field looks pretty rough right now, chock full of artichoke stems and burned out buds. Yesterday the crew came through and picked everything. And the plants looked quite ancient, straggly and prickly. Their giant downy leaves had turned dry and brittle. What a treat to watch that cycle. We have a new batch ready to plant soon.
