Two mad gnomes and a big garden.
The Veggie Gnome does the edible stuff, the Berry Gnome the berries and taties.
Artichokes really are a magnificent plant and great to eat.We usually end up cleaning, cooking and then eating them straight away in the kitchen with lemon. No need for fancy hollandaise sauce.What a great Spring day we are having. We have seeds bursting from the soil everywhere today, tomatoes, rocket, all the joys of summer!
We don't fuss much with artichokes either. Prepare a dressing with extra-virgin olive oil, lemon, salt & pepper (and freshly chopped herbs of your choice, if you like). Cook artichoke hearts and throw straight into this dressing. Eat with crusty, freshly baked bread. :)Yeah, spring is here and everything is eager to germinate, grow and look its best!
I will be away! I hope there are still some in my garden in November.
