Plant of the Month Recipes – January – Broccoli

Broccoli is a cool-season crop that loves sun! It does take a long time to mature, so patience is key! But is all worth it because Broccoli is rich in vitamins and minerals.

  • When to Plant: Broccoli should be started in late winter or early spring for an early summer crop. Goal is to get Broccoli to mature before or after high temperatures.
  • Zone: 3-10
  • Where: This plant requires full sun and moist/fertile soil.
  • Harvesting: Its best to harvest Broccoli in the morning when the buds of the head are firm just before the heads flower. If you see yellow flowers it is suggested to harvest immediately.
  • Fun Fact: Once you harvest the main head of a Broccoli plant, it will keep producing smaller side shoots that can be enjoyed for months.
