Well here we are, six months on and the broccoli plants have survived rain, sleet and wind; lots of wind ....
And they are producing more than enough side shoots for a couple of meals per week ... fantastic!
I prefer to eat them almost raw, blanched in hot water for a minute, and then part of a salad mix.
In my experience, the plants will keep producing through the Spring and into early Summer, if not longer.
It is a great return for a small investment in plants and a little patients.
