This will be the third year for this artichoke plant.

That's good, J!
1 sprout is a promise more might be coming along! :-)

Plant them out of the way, somewhere...
You may not get chokes big enough to eat the first year, but the 2nd and 3rd I'm sure you will.
Heck, they my like Texas and you might get good ones the first year!

Good luck!

Looking good Rusty! Hopefully mine do at least half as well.

Here's my first ever attempt at growing artichokes. They seem to like the Tx weather so far.

Any luck with them peppers yet Rusty? After hanging around the 2-3" mark for about a month mine are finally taking off. They are about 5-6" now. Im experimenting with topping a few of the plants for the first time. They seem to be bushing out quite nice in only a week.

Hmmmm..... are you starting them inside or outside? I always start mine indoors. I can never seem to get them to germinate outside. On top of the fridge with a plastic dome lightly over them works best for me. Hopefully they will come up soon. Here's what mine look like so that you know the seeds are good.

Jalapeno's in the garden

Tabasco's in the garden. Looks a bit dry out today huh?

Here is a Jal & a Tabasco that I topped last week. They are bushing out pretty good. This is my first time trying that.

I also planted some Bell Peppers that just now came up. They took FOREVEEERRRRR.

If you need more seeds just let me know.
