These photos were taken at the Colonial Williamsburg Nursery which "is an interpretive and sales site featuring 18th-century garden plantings, botanical histories, historically accurate plants and reproduction gardening tools for sale." (

It was my first time to see an artichoke plant.

How do you eat your artichoke?

An artichoke Friday to you!


  1. Hi There.
    I'm looking for your Friday-Follow post.
    Have a great day!

  2. I love artichokes! I love them just steamed and then dipping them in butter, I LOVE them on my pizza too. And who doesn't love a good cheese and artichoke dip! I too have never seen an artichoke plant. Very interesting!

  3. pretty picture...although I just dont care to eat much work, so little food!

    Just stopping by through the friday follow to check out your blog. Come follow back if you get the chance. Ive got some great ecofriendly giveaways, freebies, and coupons to check out!

    Have a great weekend!


  4. Love your blog!

  5. if you ever get into the bay area, there is a restaurant called ASQEW GRILL ( they have grilled artichoke for appetizer that is done perfectly combined with a dipping sauce to die for.

    you know a city/town here in the bay area is known as artichoke capital, Castroville and has a festival every year so you can taste different ways to eat artichoke. the festival is fun []

  6. New follower here from Friday Follow. I actually have a recipe online! Would love to welcome you to my place as well. Just finished a 30 minutes pilot as well! Hope to hear from you soon!

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma, What's For Dinner?

  7. In our cafeteria, they usually steam it or just boil it then pair it with turkey or roast beef.
