  Hi Allan...would it have been wise to have listened to your county agent?.
.I expect him/her didn't  just fall off the tatter wagon...Franklin

The county extension agent once told me that only a fool trys to grow
broccoli or cauliflower in the mid-Atlantic in the spring. I don't
doubt that he is wrong.
 
I didnt' check on my several thousand plants for a couple of days and
when I did...ouch! Rows of sprays of yellow flowers and just a few
moderate sized tight heads.
 
It's early in the season and, assuming it is too late and too hot to
hope for cut-and-come-again side shoots,  I hate to just pull the
whole planting and pitch it.
 
I remember that many people like the whole brocolli plant to slice
and stir fry. I'm also wondering about blender brocolli soups
 
Any ideas?
 
Thanks - Allan in WV
