We grew this in the yard. It’s a biggie, and pretty tasty. I know. I sampled it. We cut it last night, and cooked it. We’re going to have it with some ravioli, we bought yesterday at the Half Moon Bay Farmer’s Market.

I thought they were green. Is this a different variety or just a full grown one?
I wrote a reply to this and it didn’t post. That’s just weird. I do that all the time on your blog. Glad AZ answered. Thx az
Yeah Steve, they’re green until you cook them then then turn sorta OD green/grey, lemon juice is supposed to keep them greener, but I’ve tried rubbing them with lemon juice before I cook them and it doesn’t work. Having said all that, I’ll have to admit I had two artichokes are week or so ago because they were on sale for 99¢ each at Sprouts. I love artichokes, with butta.
AZ, thanks. I Learn something new every day.
I love the artichokes too. AZ, do you know a quick way to cook them. Right now we are steaming them and it take FOREVER.
Nope, I steam or boil mine and it takes 45 minutes or more, but I did read you can microwave them, but I’ve never tried it.
I was hoping there was a shortcut. that’s what we do too. I have 2 more ready to pick on the plant. YUMMY!
Are you saying you drove to Half Moon Bay on a Saturday on that one lane road? Wasn’t it crowded?
We did go to Half Moon Bay but the one lane doesn’t start until tomorrow. Apparently the tunnel shifted and now they are delaying the opening a whole year. WHINE!!!
Oh no duh, I just remembered you said the market was on Weds…
Half Moon Bay’s Farmer’s Market is on Saturday. Pacifica’s Farmer’s Market is on Wednesday.
Got your letter and remembered I had one in the veggie bin. Have the remains right here, right now. When you’re finished with the leaves, you cut it up and eat the heart, don’t you?
Yes. I love the heart. I am greedy and don’t share it either.
I eat the heart. It’s the most delicious part! Watch out for the thistles around it though.
I don’t know why the hearts in a jar aren’t as yummy. Wish they were.
