Artichokes


Broke out the smuggled Frenchie cheeses–chabichous, tomme, boutons, banon, and some brillat savarin–this weekend. I invited people to eat cheese, but first forced them to work! We harvested artichokes, carrots, swiss chard (still in a pile in the garden, the rabbits won’t even eat it). Also, pulled weeds and cleared all of the flowering arugula. Planted the tomato plants that Billy watered while I was away in France (they were huge!). Only then did my lovely friends sit down to eat cheese, drink rose, and enjoy a lovely day. These are the green globe ‘chokes, the violettos are just starting to come up. Of course there are aphids on them. I just soak them in water overnight–the remaining? That’s extra protein.
