I feel like a new mother all over again. I planted broccoli for the first time this spring and I harvested it this week. I received the free tiny broccoli plants when I took a gardening seminar at a local nursery back in May. My daughter and I excitedly planted them, because broccoli is a staple at our house. We had steamed broccoli with our dinner a couple of times this week. It was delicious, but I think I especially liked it because it came from our garden.
This picture was taken on June 10th. I didn’t realize how big the leaves get. They are actually blocking one of my tomato plants from the sun. I planted them too close together when I didn’t realize the eventual size of the broccoli.
Besides the broccoli, I have 5 tomato plants, 1 sweet pepper plant, 1 jalapeno plant and various herbs. I also planted 2 blueberry plants. I don’t plant too much because we don’t have a lot of space and we get most of veggies from a CSA.
How is your garden doing? What have you harvested this week?

Now I am wondering if the one plant (broccoli or cauliflower) that survived the bunny attack is actually broccoli and not cauliflower like I thought. It looks like your leaves.
I also have tomatoes, peas, zucchini. I actually did my post today on my garden. How funny. Mine is not ready to harvest though.
