Last winter, a friend gave me a baby artichoke. The artichokes that grew from it were super tender. Not tough and woody like the ones you get at the store.
This winter, my artichoke plant made lots of seeds. Now I have enough artichoke babies to fill a city block.
If you are in the Bay Area and want to adopt one, hit me up! Each plant needs ~ 3-4 square feet to grow.
