  5. It looks great! I attempted it once here, but the heat is too much - you only get teensy tiny heads.

  6. Congratulations. That looks wonderful. I've tried to grow it several times and always failed. You've got the "green thumb." (and all the rest of the green fingers, too) :)

  18. Candace, this was my first year of growing broccoli successfully too!!! And you are spot on - it tastes amazing! So much better than the store bought. My kids were snipping it off and eating it right in the garden. I love your b & w photo of it!! ;)

  20. Hey, congratulations! That's a winter vegetable down here (of course you know this already), so it's fun to see it as a summer vegetable UP there. I think my biggest garden surprise is how FANTASTICALLY different home grown vegetables taste. My favorite example: green beans....oh my!

  22. There's nothing like homegrown produce. It's always a thrill to harvest your own. Your broccoli looks great! Love the B/W.

  23. Vegetables are a bit like cookies, they always taste better when they're your own :-). This is my first visit to your site and I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. You really take beautiful pictures. I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
