A… is of course for Artichoke!
It has to be!
They were only allowed to be eaten by royalty so many years ago and nowadays eaten by the adventurous.
Artichokes and sunflowers are family and best friends in the garden.
They are loved by myself, aphids and stink bugs, but luckily they just hang out as pests undercover in the leaves.
Artichokes are the most delicious tasting eating experience… but don’t tell anyone!
Simply boil for 20-30 minutes and enjoy the meat from each leaf before the decadency of the heart.
The only thing I don’t like about artichokes is that they only fruit late spring and summer.
