I'm finally back online after my computer died.

A lot has been going on since my last post. I've had a great crop of fava beans and started another round. All of my tomatoes and peppers are in the ground...although I'm having my annual freak-out where I'm worried they're not going to do anything. More on that in a future post.

And I had a couple of artichokes this year. One plant popped up about a month ago. I did a double take as I was walking along my sidewalk.

How come I didn't notice this earlier?!

I let my lone artichoke last year flower and go to seed. I really wanted to harvest it, but felt bad since that plant worked so hard. I was happy enough that I had a plant actually produce a single artichoke.

This year was different. So delicious! I'm not a huge mayo fan and like to make my own when I can. A quick alternative is to squeeze a few drops of lemon into a small spoonful of mayo. I had it along side my hummous sandwhich.

Two for one stalk!

I have another one in my backyard. Looking forward to having that one as well. I'll be sure to make some mayo this time!

Looking forward to more yumminess!
