I Love Broccoli!

Who doesn’t? ;) You can put broccoli in just about any meal, and it is one of the most nutritious veggies you can eat! This is the first year I have attempted to grow broccoli, and I have had great success so far, other than Turk taking a bite off a few leaves here and there. :p  Today I prepped one of my broccoli plants for harvest. To prevent the broccoli head from going all rangy, you have to tie a string or place a rubber band around the leaves to keep the growing head of broccoli in an organized and tight grouping, which will make harvesting easier as well as your broccoli looking prettier ;) I am going to try to get the head of broccoli as big as I can before harvesting. As soon as any of it starts to yellow, that means the plant is going to seed and you have to harvest ASAP. I have two pants growing so far, one is still pretty small, so I won’t be prepping that one for another few weeks. Take a look!

The head of broccoli is growing bigger each day.

Here is the rubber band I placed just under the leaves.

The plant is tied and ready for harvesting soon!
