We’ve had two back-to-back bummer seasons for our own broccoli starts, but I was still a little bit sad when Farmer Dave told me he wasn’t starting any broccoli plants this year. Dave starts all of our tomato and pepper plants in our basement under a homemade greenhouse, and growing room is pretty limited. He would much rather give his precious space to the varieties of tomatoes and peppers he enjoys growing every year.
Imagine my surprise when I saw these little beauties poking through the soil this week. Not only did he see fit to start me some broccoli, he even sowed some cabbage seeds as well. If this isn’t love, I don’t know what is. The older I get, the more I appreciate the little things.
