Weed Seeds, Artichokes, and Citrus Trees


C.L. and Ellen discuss how weed seeds have an amazing ability to rest dormant in the soil for years. We peel back the layers of Artichokes, review a book about growing a mini fruit garden, and discuss keeping citrus trees happy indoors.  We reference this piece from the New York Times – it’s about a seed experiment that’s been going on for a long time.

We talk about artichokes in this episode. Can you grow them in colder climates? Is it worth doing so

You might want to grow artichokes for the flower alone…they also dry well.

These are three of the ripe lemons on the Meyer lemon tree that C.L. grew indoors every winter.
