For the love of artichokes

SACRAMENTO, CA. - My mother lives in the Monterey area and just brought me a treat: the official vegetable of Monterey County.

In case you don't know what vegetable that is, it's the artichoke. She didn't just bring me one artichoke but a bundle of them. It lead me to wondering, can we grow artichokes in Sacramento and just how good are these things for you anyway?

According to Dale Huss the vice president of artichoke production at Castroville's Ocean Mist Farms, "Artichokes are fun to grow."
