Flowering Broccoli

broccoli in bloom

The “head” of the broccoli plant, the part that one eats, will eventually turn into flowers and later seeds. Here’s what a broccoli plant looks like when it is flowering. We didn’t go down to the garden for a few days (it was raining here and the garden was being watered by nature itself) , and they got away from us. These brocolli plants will not be being eaten. They have nice yellow flowers, but they do not smell sweet – in fact they stink.


We planted these kiwi about 5 years ago. They are cut back every year because they need it — they are extremely aggressive climbers. Last year we had kiwi flowers but no fruit. This year we had many more flowers and we’re hoping some of them will become kiwi fruits.
