I know! It's crazy, isn't it?

It blew my mind when I found out we could grow artichokes. The lessons I've learned for next year are -- give them a lot more water, and beef up their soil with as much manure, compost, and fertilizer as I can spare.

We've enjoyed eating them immensely, but all our 'chokes so far have been relatively small and not very tight. I think more food and water will help that,

Mr. Kelly,
You gave us a dud. Ours is limp, but I will follow your suggestions for next year.

Don't worry, you can return it for a full refund.
