I have been growing a winter garden made up of collards, broccoli,
cabbage and cauliflower in a raised garden bed. My question concerns
my broccoli. I harvested the broccoli heads last december and
thoroughly enjoyed them due to the enhanced taste over store bought. I
have allowed the plants to continue to grow and they produced yellow
flowers and finally went to seed. The plants themselves continue to
look hearty through 20s degree (F) temperatures and are beginning to
show signs of new heads forming where the leaves join the main stalk.
Will the new heads continue to develop throughout the spring and
result in a second harvest?
Usually, If you harvested in December, and side shoots have been
allowed to seed, the remaining side shoots will be thin and scraggly.
If you don't need the space for something else, give it a try.You can
always use the little shoots like broccoli raab.
