Artichokes in PA update 2

My parents just sent me these pictures of the artichokes growing in their garden.

It appears that another plant started budding, although the bud is somewhat horizontal. The already budding plant has sprouted several more buds. Exciting! I wasn't sure if it was going to be only one per plant, but fortunately it's more.

The biggest bud seems pretty mature. It's already starting to open up. I think we're going to let it flower just to see what it looks like. We'll eat the others though. Hopefully I can make it back home in time.
