Broccoli in bloom

It’s funny how veg tastes so much better when you grow your own. Purple sprouting broccoli was a real treat over winter, with heaps of servings from just a couple of plants. What came as a bit of a surprise was the pretty yellow flowers that arrived late in May as the seasons change and summer crops prepare to go in. They are apparently edible but we decided to try cutting the stems a bit longer and putting them in a vase instead. I was pretty happy with the result!

Here’s a little look at what the broccoli plant looked like in the ground – there is still more to eat here but we wanted to make room in the veg garden so we were ready to move on.

  1. I left my to flower for the bees! They loved it and I was so tempted to pick it! It was a sad day when I pulled it up! 😦
