A two-year-old Green Globe artichoke plant chucking out `chokes

Replanting the vegetable garden has been delayed due to a biblical plague of gophers. A whole bed of dill was wiped out as were several celery and broccoli plants. So far I’ve trapped three of the pesky rodents, but at least four more have managed to evade me (for now).

Strangely, however, the artichokes remain unmolested. I lost two or three plants to the gophers last fall, but after trapping one particularly fat bugger back in December, the bed has been delightfully gopher free. As a result, we’ve a number of ripe artichokes ready for eating, which pleases my wife (a documented artichoke lover) a great deal.

I’ll be cooking these along with a steak for dinner. Hopefully the artichoke’s luck will rub off on me.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
