On a lark, this spring I planted artichokes out in the yard, in the form of home-made sapplingsi. They were brought forth from seed in pots indoors over the winter. Today is November the 8th, lo and behold!
The nights get cold, we even had a couple light frosts, but the days are so warm and sunny they're thriving. And also, the sweet potato stock for next year would want to come out and play :
The garden of wonder, I tell you.———
