An Artichoke Among the Sagescomments (6) March 8th, 2009 in Gallery
I enjoyed an artichoke recently that was so delicious and "meaty" that I couldn't stop thinking about it for a few days. It was grilled and I had it sans dip but I was fantasizing about a dressing I can make at home from the Meyer lemons in my garden, some olive oil, garlic and a sprig of tarragon.
I'm like that. I can be obsessive about food, especially the kind I can grow at home.
Fortunately, my zone 10 garden in Los Angeles is ideal for growing artichokes and right now is the perfect time to put out transplants in the garden. We are experiencing cool evenings and daytime temperatures in the 60-70 degree range, which artichokes like. So, I went into the garden to look for a good spot for it.
