Harvested my very 1st broccoli today!

  1. Yea, me! They're small heads, but heads none-the-less. It's the first time I've grown broccoli. I love fresh steamed broccoli, with lots of butter and some salt--or even olive oil and salt.
  2. Wow, how neat! :nuts:

    I love broccoli and so does my family, but it never occured to me to grow it myself. We currently have Tomatoes, Leeks, Zucchinis, Squash, Strawberries, Lettuce, Radishes and a whole bunch of herbs.

    Is it hard to grow broccoli? I need to read about this! I don'T even know what a broccoli plant looks like, LOL
  3. YAY!! Congratulations!

    Sternchen, its not hard to grow at all! It like it a bit on the cool side, but there are lots of varieties, its really nice to have your own.
  4. I'd love to see some pics, I wish I could grow my own veggies.
  5. That's awesome! Yum!
  6. Fabulousity, do you have a yard or a balcony / porch? Growing veggies and herbs is so easy - even with limited space! :smile:

    Hello from a fellow Marylander (now living abroad!) :wave:
  7. It's great growing your own vegetables, isn't it? Even though we grow crops on a commercial scale ( yes, we are farmers!!) there is nothing like the satisfaction I get from the veggie patch in my garden. Here are some pics from summer just gone
  8. And more.. Oops uploaded the first one of my little boy being silly by mistake

  9. Wonderful! Those figs are gorgeous...everything is! May I ask what variety of beets those are? That's a wonderful selection of tomatoes too!

  10. I have a backyard, but my neighbor has cats lots and lots of cats they'd prob eat whatever I try to grow before it has a chance to mature :tdown: not to mention they pee everywhere.


  11. Looks yummy! especially those green beans which are one of my fave veggies :biggrin:
  12. Ugh, how annoying!

    My neighbor has cats too and they pee on our CARS!!! You can imagine the wonderful smell that we have every morning when we go to work...

  13. :shocked: whooooa and I thought I had it bad.
