We were delighted to see the broccoli we planted in late summer finally growing crowns of broccoli florets. My first broccoli harvest! After I cut off four broccoli bunches, my son stopped my harvesting. “Let’s do an experiment and see if the florets really turn into tiny flowers”, he said. For science, I left a few of the small bunches on the stalk.
We also harvested lettuce, arugula, radishes, beets and turnips (4.5 pounds) from our garden plot this week. The brussel sprouts are not ready to harvest. We planted them late. We may not get a mature sprout. Anyway, I am thankful my family likes salads and our garden plot is still producing!
