    Carol, it's tricky growing artichokes where winters are as cold as they are in Rhode Island, but see these tips from the Connecticut Agricultural Experimentation Station:

    I planted one for fun last year after seeing a globe artichoke blooming at Disney World. Didn't get any artichoke but it had interesting foliage. I was surprise this spring when it came up again. Still no artichokes, but the foliage is pretty.
