I love fresh Broccoli!
This year it was planted twice. First in March, from seed ( Calabrese Variety) and transplanted outside in April, only 6 survived but it was plenty for the space and we a good supply. All plants were removed by July, “Note to self” stagger planting times for a continuous supply.
Summer speed by too fast to get my act together to start more seeds for the fall, should have been doing this in July…ooops…so I picked up a few seedling starters from the Nursery, in Sept..late ??Yes..but they did produce some nice crowns
A few side shoots are coming up still
They have been covered with straw for insulation…and to keep some critters out , all being well we’ll have some good spring growth… I may have to build a cover for the plants to encourage them a little more through the next couple of months… will time allow for that?? We’ll see..
Something new I’m trying, that is also in this bed ( on the left) is Purple Sprouting Broccoli, they wont produce till the spring…cant wait to see how it does 🙂
