Eating broccoli can reduce risks of heart disease, cancer. It protects against lung disease, build the immune system, and good for pregnant women because it contains folic acid. Vitamin C in broccoli can prevent polyarthritis. It is also good to help with rheumatoid arthritis. Its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory factors are great for asthma patients.
After reading all the good stuff................Here is the bad news, what is wrong with my broccoli?

  1. Oh Oh.., so sad. Broccoli has to go through 13 problem. That calls for an early exit?

  2. Errr... #13? Bacterial soft rot? I went to the two links given here. So, I just guess. Nonetheless I hope you are able to find a solution. Have a fruitful weekend!

  3. My broccoli was a heartbreaker this year too. All that space, all that time. And not one head of broccoli. Next year more greens and basil and I'm going to buy my broccoli at the farmer's market!

  4. Bangchik, Steph, and theurbanfieldguid -
    I have no clue what happen to my broccoli. Seems like I never have any luck when planting broccoli, and refuse to spay any toxic stuff in my garden.
    This weekend, I have to get broccoli from the grocery store to bake a quiche.

  5. Ha ha... how was your quiche? yummy?

  6. Looks like cabbage worms to me. Oh, they are awful. They blend in so well that it's hard to spot them even as they grow fatter and fatter. My broccoli has been poorly this year too. So sorry!
