Globe artichoke

It is that day of the year when the artichokes are lifted and slips are taken from the two year old plant, you just take these young slips, these severed from the main stem below ground level at the point where they meet the trunk, and get rid of the rest. It does sound like a big job but goes well if you have someone like Thomas on the job with you. It was the hottest day of the year so far so maybe not the best day to do it, now I want it to cool down a little and maybe rain a little also, I do like to get things my way.
