Our Farmer’s Market is always introducing me to amazing new things.
This week, one of our favorite famers gave me these awesome artichokes. Except they were arranged with all of his flowers, not his other produce the way you’d think artichokes should be.
He said it was something new he was trying. They weren’t quite good enough to sell as produce, but he loved arranging them at home as decoration.
I’ve been into using food as flowers since our wedding, when we used as many herbs as possible in the homemade flower arrangements. (my bouquet was mostly sage, rosemary, thyme and dill. i looooved it!) So I was absolutely onboard with this unusual bouquet.
I even temporarily swapped out my gorgeous orchid at my desk for a little springtime green inspiration.
Except now all I want to cook are artichokes. Seems kind of cannibalistic, right?
Maybe back to the orchid next week…
