Marketing in Heidelberg

It was a sunny Saturday afternoon out in the Marktplatz...

These are artichoke blooms - I'd never seen before what would happen
if the choke wasn't eaten and allowed to blossom.

My bounty from the market: greens from nearby Handschuheim (literally "Glove Home"),
some Poire William pears, blackberries, and a squash of some sort,
which turned out quite dense and yam-like.

Hmmmm, I always thought artichokes are like pineapples, some kind of fruit. But, they bloom?????

You know, I don't know what happens to pineapples...Maybe they already bloomed? Weird. :)
