[Market-farming] Broccoli leaves -- new crop

As we clean our harvested broccoli heads and side shoots for market, we 
remove a lot of younger broccoli leaves.  This year we started selling 
them at $3 for a 12 oz bag.  Everyone who has tried them has come back 
for more and we are now going to try planting some of the left-over seed 
from varieties that didn't produce heads that well here to see if we can 
get a salable leaf crop in this too-rainy-for-head-anyway season. 

Best wishes to all,
