Artichokes, artichokes, and MORE artichokes!

There's a field off Interstate 10 near Indio which is currently growing artichokes.  Did you know artichokes grow on stems?  Yup.  They do (see photos).  These look nice and healthy and seem to be surviving our low  nighttime temps (we've had frosts here for about a week).  I passed by this field the other day and stopped to take these photos.  We love artichokes and stuff ours with garlic and drizzle them with olive oil!  :-)
