Almost two weeks ago, on our California trip, we passed by Castroville, CA which proclaims itself the “Artichoke Center of the World”, and I had to stop to take pictures. California produces all of the artichokes in the United States, with Monterey county, where Castroville is located, accounting for 80% of that. I am told that artichoke plants like the fog that comes almost on a daily basis to this part of Northern California.
