One of the perks of growing broccoli is that the plant produces side shoots after the main head has been harvested. I was never quite sure what a side shoot was or how many there would be, but thus far, I have been pleasantly surprised. From the one plant that I have harvested a head from, I have now harvested about another head worth of side shoots. This is pretty good given that its Dec/Jan; when things are growing quite slowly.
I also harvested some spinach this week that was used on homemade pizza and I harvested more collards that were braised with bacon (I didn't have any turkey necks this time).
Oh and last week I did harvest a carrot, but it wasn't useable. I didn't think they were ready, but I just had to pull one to be sure.
