How do I get rid of ants and aphids in my artichokes?

by Dot
My artichokes are so full of aphids and ants that they are not fit to eat. I'm think that ants probably bring the aphids there and tuck them between the artichoke leaves, so the solution might be to get rid of the ants. I have heard that other people have this problem with ants in the artichokes, too.
