… now I know: they grow on ordinary plants, just like tomatoes.

Well, of course it is not a surprise. But I had just never seen an artichoke plant. The area between Roscoff and Morlaix (further south) is not only famous for its onions, but it is also called the ceinture dorèe, the golden belt. It provides two thirds of France’s artichokes, underlining its agricultural and economic importance. Where else could I learn where these layered vegetables actually come from.
