Started picking my second planting of broccoli this week and so far have gotten 10 very nice large heads off Gypsy. From looking at the plants I should start picking Arcadia this weekend or early next week. My third planting of broccoli is starting to put on very small heads but it will be a few weeks before it will be ready. I even have a fourth and fifth planting of broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage but I may be sick of all of them by then or need the room before they are ready. I know I way over planted this year but I had the plants that I started myself and it didn't cost much to just go ahead and set them out so I did. I guess if a hard freeze doesn't hit in the next few weeks I will be giving a lot away. We have never found a way to freeze broccoli so it is not mushy when thawed and cooked. If someone knows how I would love to hear about their method.
