Broccoli Harvest Time!

Oh guys.  It seems like just yesterday the broccoli were itty bitty babies, small enough to fit into my hands.   They weren’t bushy.  Their leaves weren’t over a foot long.  They didn’t have a head on them over a pound in weight.  They were just little small broccoli babies, hanging out.  But as life happens, broccoli grows up.  It gets big.  It needs more water.  It needs less support because wind isn’t any match for a adult broccoli plant.   One thing stays the same though, it always lets me hug it. Hugs make plants grow strong.  Always remember that! 😉


The first half of broccoli season is over or us.  In a few days we’ll plant broccoli seeds for the Fall batch, but for now this post is dedicated to the Spring 2014 broccoli group.  Broccoli is one of our favorite plants to grow so it’s always exciting to watch these small seedlings grow into massive sized plants.

Technical specs of this batch of broccoli.  Seeds were planted indoors January 16.

The plants moved outside under a greenhouse on April 1.  Broccoli heads started to be seen around the middle of May.

Full heads were picked at the beginning of June.   The broccoli plants were removed from their containers on June 14 where now Soybeans live.

Instead of talking through all the pictures I’m just going to post a bunch below..  I take many pictures of our broccoli plants, I just can’t help it, they are cute little buggers.   

Hope you guys enjoy a walk through the garden!
