Finally our broccoli has started to flower. These plants have been in the raised garden bed over the course of the summer without any sign of flowers. Now, just as I was about to rip them from the bed to replace them with something more productive, they’re forming beautiful flowers. I love broccoli – it is one of my favourite vegetables. Perhaps it is the idea of eating flowers, certainly it is the fertile and vibrant green colouring – particularly after the flowers have been steamed.
