Artichokes in the Pacific Northwest


Artichokes do grow in the Pacific Northwest. Here’s proof. Artichokes is one of the things customers asked for at the farmers market this summer. Next season I’ll attempt to provide a steady supply from late July onwards. They are a thistle, but the leaves are soft and look lovely in any garden. They are worth growing just for their looks.

  1. I surely do love your blog! The animation you report in all you experience in your environment, without verbosity, speaks to my soul!

    Thank you.

    Artichokes in the PNW??? May I ask where you farm? I’d like to be you (when I grow up!).
