We feel the broccoli harvest this spring has worked out well. We plant 3 different varieties at two different times. This staggered and diverse planting is our insurance plan and this year it worked, with a steady stream of this delicious brassica.
Tonight we took some advice from a blog last fall and enjoyed broccoli stem. I prefer to think of them as broccoli hearts right now, as they are incredibly tender, and need little more than salt and pepper to accent the flavor. A real treat.

The high tunnel is entering its feeding cycle, as we have spaded and seeded with sudan grass and cowpeas. Such tillings are a Rocky magnet. He was able to enjoy lots of soft, dry ground these last few days.
