I've Got a Luv-er-ly Bunch of Artichokes.

Aren't they beautiful? One of the best things about being a gardening junkie is that you get to eat the profits. You also get to hang out with those of a similar mind, and get to eat their profits too. These were planted at work by a colleague, from cuttings supplied by another work-mate. We have all been swapping recipes and living well on the fat of the land. And they were delicious!
 The small ones were pan fried in olive oil and garlic, served with lemon juice, (lemon from my sister's tree), cracked pepper and sea salt. 
The large ones were used in soup. Best soup ever!
