It comes and goes pretty darn quick. The bad part about broccoli is it is ALL ready to harvest at the same time, and it gets tough and bitter (and wormy!) if you wait just a day or two too long. So this weekend is broccoli harvest time. 24 heads were cut, soaked, cleaned, blanched, bagged, and nestled in the freezer. This is the part of gardening I always seem to struggle for time to accomplish the task at hand - harvesting. Its nice to just go cut dinner, but in most cases you have do more than just cut dinner with the rest of the harvest. But in one Saturday morning, and the plant clean-up on Sunday monring, and I'm done. I'm SO grateful I'm not running to races weekend, after weekend this year. It leaves just enough time to get in the garden.
