From garden to table
1st Broccoli Harvest!
- Anika3, CNN iReport producer
This is the first year I have been successful at growing broccoli, and I owe it all to starting my seeds indoors under grow lights. Earlier this spring instead of planting broccoli seeds in the garden and hoping for the best, I chose to plant my seeds indoors instead. And it made all the difference in the world.
Up here in the Pacific Northwest, we have to contend with a lot of rain, and slugs. I think having started the seeds indoors under lights, and then later moving the broccoli seedlings to the greenhouse until they gained a bit of bulk really helped this year.
Hot Diggety Dog! Broccoli soup is on the menu for tonight!
