choke on it
Remember when I said I was growing artichokes on our roof deck? Well, I haven't mentioned them again because I have been pretty disappointed. It's not that they aren't growing well, or that they require too much attention (I have only watered them once!) it's just that after all the drama of the super tall corn I grew on the roof last year, the artichokes just seemed sort of puny and lame.
But all that changed today when I went out to check on them and found not one but two baby artichokes forming! So to my artichoke plants I would like to say, "I am sorry I had so little faith in you. Some plants just take longer to get going and I should have had more patience. Now grow up big and tasty so I can eat you."
