My broccoli started forming those beautiful little heads of florets last month.
And now it's already flowering!
But, while it lasted, it tasted soooo good. Almost sweet. I like broccoli, and have always loved store bought broccoli. But now the store bought kind tastes bitter to me.
Mine also had a wonderful blue-green color. In my mind, I imagined that the dark color was due to all the vitamins and nutrients stuffed in every cell.
I think that's why a lot of people grow their own vegetables. Not only for the fresh taste, but for the added nutrients. After all, this broccoli only had to travel from the garden to the kitchen. It never spent a second on a truck. It never waited in the grocery store. It was never stored in the refrigerator. Instead, it was eaten fresh, with pride and appreciation.
Thanks, broccoli! You didn't last long, but you were yummy while you lasted!
