Well, Wow, Hi There!

I planted some broccoli back in the Spring when I was in that manic LET'S PLANT EVERYTHING WE EAT, QUICK PLANT A COW, MAYBE WE SHOULD RAISE CHICKENS, OKAY, THEN, ALL VEGETABLES EVERYWHERE WILL GROW AND PROSPER AND MAKE US ALL TRUE FARMERS WHO GET INVITED TO BE ON OPRAH phase. The broccoli didn't come up but I figured that there was just way too much going on in the bed and I had just thrown the seeds in willy-nilly because, hello, MANIC PLANTING.

Today, I went to look for straggler bell peppers and jalapenos and this is what I saw.



I know I'm easy but you know when you take what seems like a leap of faith and you confess something that you think is a big deal which then turns out to NOT be such a big deal and you're all sheepish and, well...sheepish and then it's almost like God gives you a present as if to say, "There, there, Sweetheart. Try to calm down."

Well, it's like that.

It is a great piece of broccoli. I know that broccolis come in something other than pieces, but what???
I was very thrilled by a nasturtium several years ago. Actually, I am usually thrilled when anything I plant actually grows.

Broccoli from seed??? Kewl! (And isn't it getting down right cold up there? How long does broccoli last?)
