I should have started the Broccoli at the same time as the cauliflower, mid February. They're so small in comparison at this point. But do have their true leaves, and I think they'll grow faster in the ground.
So I set them out today.
As the pill bugs are chomping any tender leaves they can get to, I've put them under plastic cloches just to be safe.
On the other side of the garden, are some stumps of last year's Broccoli plants. By the time I went to remove them, ground was frozen and I couldn't get the roots out. So I left them there, intending to dig out when I turn the soil over for composting and planting something else. To my surprise, I found that instead they're growing again!
One from the roots, it looks like
and two from the stem.
I have no idea if they'll ever form heads, but I'm sure going to let them grow and see!
