Broccoli Keeps on Giving

Broccoli is an amazing plant. First, you harvest the main stalk which grows in the middle of the plant. DO NOT REMOVE THE PLANT FROM THE GARDEN. Wait patiently. Before you know it, the plant will be growing mini broccoli flowerettes. This plant easily provides lovely dinner servings of broccoli for my small household once a week. So awesome.

Broccoli is one our favorites. How do you keep bugs off of the plant. I haven't had success in the past keeping those little worms from camping out on the stems? Thanks.

I think the little worms don't know they are here! This is the first time I've planted broccoli and I think they are in the ideal location. Healthy plants have a way of warding off pests with natural immunity.

I'll be on the lookout for the wormy critters and let you know if any appear this season.
