The final act for Broccoli
Every year I allow a couple of my broccoli plants to flower and seed.
Frankly, towards the end they look like hell.
The delicate yellow flowers turn into green seed pods and eventually turn brown.
I fill my wheel barrow with the branches of pods, gab a fist full and twist.
The seed pods burst open and little round brown seeds pop out.
In November I will plant these seeds and start the process all over again.
I can't wait till the fresh broccoli returns.
