  1. My lemon cucumbers are just starting – can’t wait. Are these the same artichokes as the plants that you gave me in May? If so….mine are about 2 feet tall. The leaves are huge and they look healthy, but no sign of much else happening!

    1. Hi Aileen, I love the lemon cucs, they are fun to grow! No your artichoke is different, it is a Green Globe,it should get about 4 feet tall before it flowers, they like heat, so, fingers crossed that the weather co-operates 🙂
