I think I would be right to saying this past winter was not a great one for the artichoke patch. It was not the cold, it was the wet that got them. Today was the day to get up there, get on my hands and knees and see what is going on. I weeded the area and then saw the sad results of the last springs slips. We have nineteen plants in each row, of the nineteen ‘Gros Camus de Bretagne’ eighteen are alive. Of the nineteen ‘Gros Vert de Laon’, three made it through the winter. To make the area look like a happier place I planted half a tray of  Papaver somniferum ‘Heirloom Poppy’
