Went out the garden to check on things and the broccoli was ready (yay). I planted 8 plants and all of them had heads on them. I only harvested 2 today, just enough for dinner. A neat thing about broccoli is that after you harvest the main head, the plants grow side shoots that also make heads! So broccoli is a plant that keeps on giving 🙂
Broccoli is one of my most favorite vegetables and though it is a little hard to grow in the summer, it is totally worth every effort you put into it. I planted these plants at the end of summer and have had no pest problems at all. We don’t use pesticide or herbicide or chemical fertilizers. The plants are all tall and strong and the heads are beautifully formed.
