Broccoli & Sweet Onions...





By next week, we will be harvesting broccoli! It has enjoyed the moisture and the cooler days. Any time it was hot outside, the broccoli patch just looked 'sad'. It's leaves would just 'droop'. Broccoli is certainly a cooler weather crop! Great for early summer and fall! Beside this patch is our sweet white spanish onions. They are awesome! Ben's mother hoed these 5 times I think! They are clean and sizing wonderfully! I'll be creating my fun little 'pineapple' bunches within a couple weeks to have available at the markets! Boy, by the time I blog again it will be July already! I'm ready, -bring on the harvest!!!
