Large green leaves are starting to form on the broccoli plants. We choose a quick producing variety for an early spring harvest of this flowering brassica.

Did you know that broccoli is in the same plant family as cabbage, kale and collards? The portion of the plant that we eat is actually the large flowering head of the broccoli plant.

We currently have one tunnel full of growing healthy broccoli. CSA Members can look forward this healthy vegetable in shares this spring.
