While the rest of the allotment harvest is swiftly moving into winter territory - I havested my first brussels sprouts and cereriac at the weekend and the leeks and cavolo nero have been on stream for a while now - I found three good-sized globe artichokes growing happily, despite a couple of reasonably heavy recent frosts that cut down the last of the dahlias.
I harvested them there are then, and made Antonio Carluccio's recipe for sweet and sour artichokes, which is very tasty.
But artichokes in mid-November? Isn't that a bit late? Or is anyone else in a similar climate to me (SE England) still enjoying a 'choke harvest?
