I am not sure that it would make sense to grow artichokes, if the
garden were serving to supply food in a crisis. But we are not having a crisis yet, so we can have fun.
Artichokes are good, but the amount of food you get, per unit
of garden, is not great.
The artichoke was sort of an impulse buy. I thought it was an
attractive plant. Perhaps there will be a trend to make
gardens both attractive and edible.
This photo was first converted to “black and white” (actually
grayscale) because it seemed that it might look good that way.
Then I gave it a sepia tone, but did not really like that.
So I made it greenish.
