Which Artichokes do you grow?
I know it isn't one of the more common crops, and also the forum is a little slow this time of year, but here goes anyway...
Artichokes are one of my favorite vegetables, so despite everything I keep working on growing them each year and the past couple of summers I have managed to get a couple of little buds to enjoy. The cultivar is Tavor, from Southern Exposure, but I am almost out of seed so this is an opportunity for me to try a different type, if that's a good idea. So does anyone have a preferred type that they grow?
Also, for some reason I thought that artichokes were supposed to flower in late summer/early fall, but both years mine have set their buds in early-mid June. Am I wrong about when they blossom, or should I be doing something different? Cheers!
