I never knew what broccoli could really look like until I started growing my own. I figured that buying organic broccoli was the best it could get-boy I was wrong. Store-bought broccoli get harvested too early (shocking) and then deprives us of broccoli’s full taste potential, as well as all of the vitamins and minerals.
I won’t be sowing anymore broccoli until late summer. The heat can really make them bolt prematurely, which leads to heads that don’t form. They love to stay moist and do best in all seasons save for summer. The broccoli that I have in the garden now is starting to mature and last evening I harvested a beautiful head.
