The artichoke plant — one of five — that we planted many years ago is really producing this year.
Three of the plants gradually died off, and one other one survives but is very small.
The big plant that has been the most successful has at least 10 artichokes on it right now. That's it in the photo above.
We've only ever eaten the artichokes from this plant one time. This year may well be the second time. The question is, do we cut and cook them now, while they are small, or wait until they get bigger?
