Salsify & Asparagus

The sorry story of the Salsify I left to see if it would be ok ends in the wheelbarrow as it went to seed and then shrivelled up without even flowering properly. Shame as it has beatiful purple flowers.
The Artichokes I actually gave a bit of support to this evening to help (appropriately) in the event of wind.

HB: Debacle is the word! Anyway - they were stringy at the end of last year and I thought I'd read somewhere that if you left them for another season they swelled up like gigantic parsnips and were very tasty. You can't they don't and they aren't. If you get my drift! You can apparently cover them with leaves, straw etc to blanch the new leaves. Allegedly.

Andrew: greetings. Artichokes are good for many things but I didn't know you'd made dens in them! The meal was great thanks! Good to see everyone.
Don't work too hard! (Only joking!!!)See you soon, Mike
