First Broccoli Raab
This morning I noticed that the tallest broccoli raab, at only about 6", had a flower on it! Hmmm, according to the seed packet info, I'm supposed to harvest the buds before the flowers bloom. It says more budding shoots will develop. Ok, so I went and clipped about 6 small, very small buds that seemed about ready to bloom. Not enough for a salad or anything, so I just popped them in my mouth. Wow! Very tender, nice broccoli-ish taste but with a hint of spicy mustard. I like it! Now if only I can harvest a decent amount... Grow, little broccoli raabs, GROW!
