Artichokes in Mr. Burbank's Back Yard
Mr. Burbank feels that the artichoke has been more neglected than almost any other plant that invites the gardener, particularly in this country. It is highly appreciated in southern Europe, but until somewhat recently has been comparatively little cultivated in America. It will be seen from this picture that Mr. Burbank himself is giving the artichokes full recognition. This handsome growth was to be seen last summer in his back yard.
