Scenes from the Garden. And ARTICHOKES!

My mom called yesterday to tell me I needed to go harvest some artichokes.  I hadn’t been to the garden in a couple weeks, so the kids and I headed over.  Coach Bob was standing guard, and everything looked beautiful in the cloudy sunset.

Agritopia Community Garden artichokes

We harvested four artichokes that are destined to drown in garlic butter tonight.

I snapped a shot of the pathway through the farm as we were leaving.  A dreamy scene.

Thank you Mom and Dad for working hard in the garden so I can come up from behind and scoop up the rewards.  I can’t wait to eat my artichoke tonight.

    I never really ever thought about how you could harvest artichokes – maybe because I’ve only ever eaten them once in my life – what a fun garden!
