Beautiful broccoli. I accidentally let one of my broccoli plants go to flower but I’m rather glad I did. Who knew it would be so beautiful? And the bees seem to be enjoying it. I sampled some and it’s quite tasty. Not surprisingly it taste of…..wait for it….broccoli! I think it might even make a nice dish. But I’ve also got my hands full of zucchini so I may not get to it. I might just let it go on being pretty and let the bees have their fill.

Just back from a rewarding, all be it HOT, visit to the “allotment”. (This is the piece of ground allotted to us in my parents garden to grow vegetables.) I’ve been over every day for the past week to water, which is a change from the wet beginnings this year. Things are growing well! It’s a little cluttered, and the whole things was definitely not overly planned, but I’m very pleased to be harvesting and eating our own vegetables. In terms of outcomes I was chiefly concerned that there would be SOME success so I would feel encouraged to keep gardening, and I definitely accomplished that. We’ve already been eating peas, zucchini, onions and cucumbers. Today’s harvest: Kohlrabi, Rainbow chard, two lovely big broccoli and some leftover onions I found while planting another row of Swiss Chard. Oh, and another big cucumber not pictured!
Broccoli with Cheese Sauce for supper! Are these not handsome broccoli??
