Look at these artichokes!

In only one short year, these tiny little artichoke plants ... 
Grew into these monstrous artichoke plants! They are over five feet tall (I'm 5'2" and they are taller than I am).
We enjoyed our very first homegrown artichoke today - the taste was fresh and delicate. So good in fact that we scarfed it down sans any kind of dipping sauce. 

And I have to say - with slugs having their way with my bean, basil, and pepper plants, it is even more satisfying to see these thriving 'chokes.
