It's Broccoli!

This is what I have been most excited about. How broccoli grows seemed like such a mystery, but there it is! I had thought that without all the leaves on the trees we would have much more sun in the winter, but I forgot that the sun is in a different position in the winter. (Forgot or never knew!) Let's just say the beds are sun-challenged. The broccoli was planted September 30 so it's been just about 4 months. It was under attack by cabbage worms at first. Once my gardening mentor, Carolyn Kameya, showed me how to spot and remove them, the plants have done well.
