Artichokes

  1. I found this beautiful, rogue cluster of artichokes along the road. I did a double take and had to shop to take pictures. Please take a look.

    Interesting interpretation Virginia. Were these just growing wild? They look a lot like the Musk Thistle that I shot several weeks ago. Are they the same family.
     
  3. Frank, artichokes grow in abundance, a few miles south of here. In Castroville there are enormous farms, where artichokes are grown commercially. These farms are part of the coastal scenery. Finding a stray cluster of plants growing wild along the road here in Portola Valley was a surprise.

    To eat artichokes, one typically boils them with a little vinegar and perhaps some herbs, until they are tender. The leaves are often dipped in butter or mayonnaise when eaten.
