Charlene discovers growing artichokes!

Today we discovered a local family farm. The couple running it have had it for 5 years and they now grow and raise all kinds of things. The most fun discovery was all the artichokes. We have seen them in the grocery store, and we have eaten them many times over the years, but we have never actually seen artichokes growing in real life. They grow on a bush and we bought 4 large artichokes cut right from the bush! Awesome!

We had fun learning about all their chickens. They have had bears and coyotes kill their chickens on several occasions. Charlene especially loved holding a chicken and learning about all their eggs.

Charlene loves the chickens!

They grow pomegranates, avocados, strawberries, and blackberries too.
