Break off and discard stem from 1 artichoke. Bend back outer leaves until they snap off close to base and remove several more layers of leaves until pale inner leaves are reached. Trim base and sides of artichoke with a very sharp stainless steel knife and cut off the top 1 1/2 inches.. Cut artichoke into quarters and cut away choke and spiky purple-tipped leaves. Rub artichoke quarters all over with a remaining lemon quarter and drop it in the bowl of water. Prepare other 3 artichokes in the same manner, using other lemon quarter if necessary. Preheat oven to 475*F In a saucepan of boiling salted water, blanch artichokes 3 minutes and with a slotted spoon transfer to a bowl. In boiling salted water blanch Jerusalem artichoke 5 minutes, and drain. In a flameproof roasting pan, 17 by 11 1/2 by 2 inches, toss artichokes, Jerusalem artichokes, onions, and garlic cloves with 2 Tbsp. olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Roast vegetables in middle of oven 20 minutes. While vegetables are roasting, heat a heavy 12-inch skillet over moderatly-high heat until hot.

Transfer lamb to a plate and cool slightly. In a small bowl, stir together chopped garlic, oregano, coarse salt, freshly ground pepper. and remaining 2 tsp. olive oil, and rub all over lamb Remove pan from oven and stir vegetables.
