Re: An Artichoke Among the Sages

Artichokes LOVE the cold winters......NOT snow, but cold. Don't cover them or protect them from frost. Why the best artichokes are from middle to Northern CA! When you come across an artichoke from the store and it has brown spots on is from sudden or long term frost, that doesn't mean it will taste bad, it actually makes them taste BETTER!!! I live in zone 9, they don't really care for the heat that much, I have to make sure they don't wilt, but this years cold has done WONDERS!
