  1. Hi Jenn!

    We're going to have lots of tomato plant starters and peppers to trade -- so keep us in mind. Also -- artichokes just LOVE the kind of weather we have right now. Mine are about four feet high now and growing like mad. They will produce a nice crop of fresh artichokes in May and June -- then die back completely in the summer (too hot). I cut them back to nothing -- the bed for them is bare -- and new shoots emerge from the root systems in the fall after the summer heat breaks. They grow through the winter and produce again in the spring. Been doing this for years. We'll be adding another bed for them this year. Can't get enough artichokes!

  2. Bill & Venus,
    I would love to make some trades. Im very close to Natomas. Im near Gibson Ranch! Im growing 12 of almost everything! I plan on canning alot, lol. Also thought about trading to, but wasnt sure who to trade with! I have never grown Artichokes, hopefully it goes well.
    Happy Gardening!
