I started planting my broccoli in the fall instead of the spring a few year ago. I was a little concerned that it wouldn't be as nice. I should not have worried. I don't even plant it in the spring anymore. It does so much better for me in the fall. I planted in three different planting and should be cutting it till Thanksgiving if the weather cooperates. I just dusted it tonight for worms. I forgot to take a picture before dusting.
