What I learned about broccoli

I am probably the last one to know this. I routinely am the last one on the information time line. This year, the second year of growing broccoli, I found out that broccoli grows back.  Complete shocker to me, especially after I systematically ripped each broccoli plant from its nutrient rich soil last year.  Wish I would have known I could have enjoyed it a little longer.

Here is a sample of what I mean, just in case there may be one or two of you still left out there that didn't know this cool broccoli fact.

I cut this about 2 weeks ago.  You can see the removal point, right in the center.  See it? It's brown and kind of crusty. 

But do you see the five florets growing around it! I am in broccoli heaven.  I don't think the rest of my family will carry themselves to that level but I know they will enjoy it.  Maybe. If I cover it with cheese.

    How awesome! I had no idea broccoli grew back. Our broccoli plants have yet to crown. It's so annoying.

    i should try broccoli again this year. i grew some last year for my fall garden, but that stupid cold snap we had in early october killed mine off before it could make heads.
