Did you know there is a facebook page for people who love broccoli? No, I'm not a member of that group. Are you? I LIKE broccoli, and simply wanted to grow some to see what it was like in plant form. Lately, my broccoli has grown up. Wanna see?
Now let me talk about my favorite part... The TASTE of fresh broccoli!!! It was a little more earthy and flavorful than grocery store broccoli. Also, the stalks!! The stalks are normally a little tough and flavorless, but my broccoli reminded me a little of celery in texture. Don't get me wrong, it didn't TASTE like celery, but it was cool and crisp, and well... wonderful.
Fresh broccoli, my friends, is a revelation. =) To close today, here is a recent picture of my garden. My lettuce is loving this cool, rainy weather.
