|Good-bye broccoli! What a bounty we've enjoyed. From the initial harvesting of the main curds (heads) at the end of November through the endless come-again spears until last week, there have been more than 40 harvests!|
|Broccoli sprouts from the root. I'd never seen or noticed|
this behavior before. I separated them out and planted
them in a large pot that I put in the shade by the potting
bench. It will be interesting to see if I can carry
them over until fall.
Transitions in the garden
There's always something going on in the vegetable gardens. I finally removed the old broccoli plants that had been keeping us supplied with all the broccoli we wanted for six months. When I removed these gnarly plants, I noticed that two of them had produced a bunch of sprouts from the roots. I have separated out the sprouts and have planted them in a large pot, which I placed in the shade. Will they last through the long, hot summer?
