since I’ve never seen an artichoke other than what is in the stores, this was very informative! Thank you

I was very surprised the first time I let my artichokes flower. I didn’t expect it! Gorgeous color. Thanks for watching Debbie.

I too have never seen artichoke but have heard about the medicinal properties of the flower and other parts of the plant. The flower has my pet color and looks so attractive. Thanks for the informative tip of the day.
