We had one broccoli ready to eat tonight. I have never grown broccoli anywhere approaching the size of what you get in a bunch at the store. My best was probably 6 or 8 times smaller than that. This one was a single stem 2 to 3 inches wide at the top. Slightly more than a mouthful.
It was one of the best things I have tasted all year, and 5 of us shared it–raw and unwashed–delicious! 🙂
