World’s largest artichoke in Castroville

Monterey was our launch point today. Before we headed north Ann submitted a request to re-photograph the western side of Fisherman’s wharf. It took a few wrong turns, a couple mistakes, and dumb luck to find a good spot from which to take the photos she wanted. That’s where we discovered a memorial to Father Juniper Serra (he was news to me) who was responsible for forming a variety of spanish missions along the coast of California. Unfortunately, he’s seems pretty forgotten in his current spot on Monterey.


With photographs snapped, we continued toward our second goal, Castroville.


Our drive from Monterey to Scotts Valley, Ca, on Wednesday.

Apparently Castroville is famous for two things. 1) it is the birthplace of Norma Jean and 2) It is the self-proclaimed artichoke capitol of the world and holds an artichoke festival every year. Norma Jean and artichokes came together in 1948 when Norma was named the very first honorary Artichoke Queen. History would show that such an honor didn’t keep Norma from leaving Castroville nor did it keep her from changing her name to the more familiar Marilyn Monroe.


We didn’t travel to Castroville to learn more about Marilyn, but rather to find the world’s largest artichoke. The area surrounding Castroville provides 75% of the domestically grown artichoke crop. The other 25% is grown in other areas of California.The unusual thing about the artichoke plant is it is basically a weed, a type of thistle. But, a yummy thistle it is!

The town of Castroville is pretty small, so it wasn’t hard to spot a giant artichoke once when we arrived. We took some photos. Then, Ann spotted ‘Fried Artichokes’. She’d never had them, so we set about having some for an early lunch. We also added an order of spinach and artichoke dip. Life was good!

1971 CJ-6 Ocean Beach, CA $4000


This has a variety of updates.

“I’ve had this jeep for 4 years. It is drivable and I take it everywhere. It has 3/4 ton Chevy axles and 24 bolt humvee wheels with 37″ military tires with run flats. It need a little bit of everything and now that I live on the beach I don’t have anywhere to continue working on it. The crazy stuff been done but it does need to be finished. Ie: tie the cage in to the frame, relocate the shock mounts, install the front driveshaft. So this jeep does need to go to someone who has some technical skills and can weld. This cj6 is a rare model and it gets tons of attention. It’s so much fun to own and drive but the time has come to pass it on. It has a Buick 231 v6, rebuilt Buick 350 transmission. I 281 tcase, whatever the full size Chevy tcase is. I’ve got an extra one with the opposite output just case you feel like switching front axles. Front axle is a 10 bolt, corporate 14 bolt rear with welded rear-end. It’s currently registered, insured and drivable. Just a little love. It’s parked in Ocean beach where West point loma ends if you’d like to see it. I’m not in a hurry to sell it and am firm on the price. I’m not interested in any trades of any kind. Thanks. Adam”

1948 CJ-2A Killeen, TX $2100


Runs, but needs work.

“1948 cj2a jeep runs good drives but needs breaks. IS NOT STREET LEGAL. To make it street legal it would need turn signals, windshield wipers, and seat belts This didn’t come with any of the above and that’s why it doesn’t have them. It needs some body work but isn’t horrible, ive bought a lot of new parts for it to make it a trail runner ie…. bigger rims and tires but will come with originals as well, roll bars bikini top with everything needed to mount, fog lights brush guard, street legal windshield glass which has been installed, shackle lift kit new bushings for leaf springs, and im sure im forgetting some other parts. anyway would be a really nice and easy father and son project and once breaks are fixed and street legal then a nice daily driver(easy on gas) if not familiar with cj2a think WW era jeeps that’s what it looks like.”
