Broccoli has always been my favorite vegetable so I’m not sure why but this year has been our first attempt at growing it in our own backyard garden. I have been so excited by the outcome. What a neat vegetable. My whole life while eating it I’ve never once thought about what a broccoli plant would look like growing. How it would just randomly start appearing from a crevice in the plant. I’ve never taken the time to think that each little ball on the end of the “tree” part was actually a very tiny little flower bud just waiting to bloom. This vegetable is not only delicious to eat but absolutely fascinating to watch grow.
