 I just picked and ate my first artichoke from my own garden! I'm so happy! I planted this particular plant last year and it didn't do anything. This year it stayed alive and exploded! There are several more artichokes that will get to be eaten in the next few weeks. Can't wait!

Growing your own artichokes awesome!   I doubt I could grow them here too short of a growing season.  Every now & then I buy them from the grocery, but honestly the flavor isn't that great.  best ones I ever had were at a restaurant in CA they had a good aioli dip, so good.

oh ok.  My son recently wanted to get one.  I've never had one - had no idea what to do with it.   So, just cook and it tastes good?  Any spices, seasonings you put on it?
