Turn on the Lights - Starting Artichoke Plants from Seed
The barn has to be my favorite space on our property. On the second floor is a fully renovated loft space with a vaulted ceiling, wide pine floors, nice bathroom, kitchenette and gas fireplace/stove. Our guests seem to love it, and to be honest, I wish we could spend more time there. I'll have to post some pictures soon.
Artichoke seeds can be rather temperamental to germinate. I like to soak them in water overnight and then sprout them in between damp sheets of paper towel within a ziplock bag. I've always had great results starting them this way and germination this time around was about 90%.
