This head of broccoli was picked from my fall garden today.

I planted 6 broccoli plants and now all 6 have broccoli heads growing. Most are still very small--this big guy was the first!

We watched him grow for quite a while and finally decided he was big enough to cut.

I'm super excited about my success with broccoli. I've been a rather negligent gardener this season... Broccoli will certainly be on my list to grow again in late winter/early spring. 

I planted broccoli and cabbage plants for my inaugural fall garden and so far, so good. I planted green bean seeds too, but none of them came up.

It would be fun to serve broccoli from our garden at our Thanksgiving dinner!

I am so impressed! I can grow flowers but vegetables have not ever been too successful, yet. Pictures like yours make me want to keep trying.

happy Thanksgiving to you.

That is awesome. I have never thought about growing broccoli. Did you plant seed or buy small plants to start??

I did plants; still haven't had success with starting my own from seed!
