What's for tea?

Let's have a look in the garden.
Aha! Globe artichokes. They'll be lovely.
Hmm... let's fill up these gaps with asparagus and broad beans.
Looking good. I can feel a garden risotto coming up. Might just grab a big bunch of parsley, too.

Oh..and I'll need some leeks. No problem. I know just the spot to get some. Hmmm...which one to pick? Ah, the small one will do.I better get cracking - all this shopping in the garden has made me hungry. :)

VG, having never tried Artichokes, can you describe what they taste like?

Gav, I really can't describe their taste. When thrown into the risotto they taste (to me) just like potatoes. I think I hear an outcry all over blogland now. ;)

I like lemon-braised artichokes better. With lemon, garlic and herbs. Very tasty.

Or preserved artichoke hearts.

Hmm... I hope somebody can chime in and describe the taste to you.
