Artichokes

If you want to set yourself up for a treat later this year, pick up some of our organic artichokes.ย  When freshly steamed, there's nothing quite like a gorgeous artichoke which, if you didn't know, is considered a thistle.ย  Most thistles in San Diego are considered weeds, and if you don't harvest your artichoke, it will indeed turn into a purple flower.
