My broccoli seedlings had a hard start in life. They almost didn’t survive being planted in the garden bed, thanks to slugs and such, but with the turn of the warmer weather, the slugs disappeared, and the plants began to grow. And grow they did, looking quite spectacular, except they didn’t seem to be producing any actual broccoli! I’ve been wondering about this since December, but fortunately I spotted my first ‘flower’ yesterday. Hooray!
