I finally harvested some brocolli yesterday! I've planted brocolli 4 or 5 times but never gotten to harvest any. It has either gotten eaten, not made heads, or gone to seed before I could harvest it. I guess I've always planted it too late in the spring. So, this time I planted it in late fall. The plants grew well, nothing ate them, and they made heads. Being cold, they never did go to seed. We ate the brocolli last night. I think I waited too long to harvest it. It was stringy and a bit bitter. I was the only one that would eat it. But after growing it, I was darn sure going to eat it! So, I'm still trying to have success at brocolli. One day I will get it right. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Do any of you know anything about ground covers? I have a steep slope in full sun behind the chicken coop. When it rains, the dirt washes into the coop. I want to stop the erosion. Any recommendations for a good, fast growing ground cover I could use?
