A couple of my artichoke plants were absolutely thriving in the early fall, so I brought them inside. And now I'm trying to figure out how to get them enough light to get them through winter. Or, at least, get the one through to where the choke you can barely make out has time to grow a tad more before I eat it. EAT IT! (I love artichokes!)
You can see the choke developing on the left in this picture.
