Dear Cardoon,

Why are you so bitter? Were you toughened by the July drought during which I neglected to water you? Were you upset that I didn’t begin blanching you soon enough this fall? You were a taste explosion, a karate chop to the tongue, despite my loving preparation of you. Next year, I’m unlikely to harvest you.
