Goodbye broccoli

The purple sprouting broccoli has been rather good this year but I had tomatoes and courgettes queuing up for a place in the raised bed, so time for it to go. These lovely yellow flowers signalled its swan song.

Pity I couldn’t leave them to bloom all summer but we vegetable gardeners are ruthless. I’ve got next year’s crop started in the bed in front and so the cycle continues.

  1. Did you save some seed?

    Anyway, I’m amazed that your broccoli lasted so long. Am about to sow mine for next year – literally, just waiting for the compost to settle after watering it.

      1. I haven’t actually grown any for two years. I served up a floret with a caterpillar in it once, so have given my daughter chance to get over it.
