Colorful Artichokes

This week we have some lovely, happy plants from the yard of our nursery manager. Check out those artichokes, and artfully trained hops. Scattered in I’ve included some fun pictures from market here in Nevada County. I like to go most weeks to the Farmer’s Market at the North Star House (a historic building connected with the county’s history as a mining town). Enjoy!

Is it too late to plant hops this Spring? I’m in Capay Valley

Rich, You can certainly plant now! Hops are often planted in May, and in colder climates than yours they can be planted as late as June.

Hi, I live in Los Angeles and my artichoke season is over. Cut some of the extra foliage because it attracted too many ants and not my plants have turned brown and seem to be dying.  I planted them in November 2013.  How can I save them? Will cutting down to 1 inch from the root help?

Hello Mia,

Is it getting enough water? Is it possible moles or gopher damage is effecting the roots? Cutting off the foliage this early in the season might unduly stress the roots.
