Broccoli mania …

Did you know that each of the little broccoli pods open up to be sweet tasting, little yellow flowers?

I love tinkering in my garden. I mean, I’m not one of those people who test the soil for chemical composition, but I really enjoy getting dirty with my son Kai. This is our first garden and everything is an experiment.

Right now only the broccoli plants are producing food. But, let me tell you, it’s the sweetest broccoli I’ve ever tasted. Sometimes, we pick a floret and pop it in our mouths. Mmmmm. (Occasionally, by accident, Kai pulls a little too hard and the entire plant – roots and all – come out of the Earth. Oops. I just dig a little hole, pat it back in and add water – then everything is right in the world again.)

We also have cauliflower and brussels sprouts growing too, although I don’t know if they’ll ever produce food. But just the hope is filling enough.
