Every spring-summer some artichokes usually grow up in a field close where I go for walking. No more grows in the small field, only grass.

Nice shots! I planted some artichokes this year--they love the climate here--and had 3 on Saturday, and 2 on Sunday. Where the 3rd one was, only a perfectly round gopher hole existed. They must like them too.

David, do you think it is easy to cultivate artichokes for a lazy keeper of a vegetable garden? Because I am thinking in plant them for the next year.

I am so lazy that only plant cucumbers, courgettes and tomatoes for summer. Well it is also because I have a big garden for taking care of (7000 m2) and many flowers.

Beautiful plants. I wish I could grow them here. I found this artichoke growing in the botanical gardens in Paris.

Lovely colors, Greg. Thanks for sharing.
I am thinking in having for dinner some ones (that I bought, of course)

I am trying four plants for the first time in Zone 5. They are now in the garden about ten inches high and very healthy. They were started in the greenhouse in March. Anyway, I won't know until August if the experiment is successful.

Oooooh my gooooodness!!! Durgan I'am really very impressed by your marvelous garden and veg'garden....

I need to learn a lot from you. What an outstanding organization!. I would like to have it 10 per cent so well.

Do you have time for using the deck-chair with so many work, Durgan?. I feel myself too lazy later I've seeing your exceptional garden. You have also a big yard... splendid!

Mariae, even the laziest gardener should be able to grow artichokes. The variety "Imperial Star" will bear the first year, and the seed will come true. Artichokes are Mediterranean natives, so need little summer water, so if you get summer rain, you shouldn't have to do anything except watch out for gophers!

I tried "Vert de Laon" and "Green Globe" which are both easy to grow and suitable for the danish climate. And artichoke is certainly very decorative: http://www.potager.dk/index.php?id=16&la=en
