I have artichokes! At least four at this point. One is almost ready to pick, three others tiny, but growing. They make me feel like an accomplished gardener, although they didn't really require much. Perhaps I shouldn't admit that here?
I was in the garden today in bright sun and needed to document the progress. I need to remember what it looked like before I pluck it from the vine and eat it for dinner!
With the bright sun at my back I stood in front of the artichoke plant. It's about 3 feet high and three feet wide, so I leaned in. With my body casting nice open shade over the artichoke I snapped. It works in a pinch!
Do you have a trick for creating or finding open shade on a sunny day?
