From the Earth: Artichokes

Artichokes caught my attention when I moved to Italy. When Artichoke season comes along, you'll start seeing more and more of these pretty veggies out on display.

Of course, music is personal, but here are some groovy tracks to add to your workout music mix, to inspire you to get down on it!
