Was just out walking the pupper, and this plant caught my eye. I was told by a friend it was broccoli. I thought I was seeing it, but then out of nowhere it threw these pretty little flowers. Did I really get beat for a Broccoli clone?5EEF5F20-86A3-41EC-9A30-B321A4FFB530.jpeg410EDA41-203A-45CC-8B35-F88F815213A5.jpeg25F4DEB1-9BE0-429A-B508-42128CA38469.jpeg2661E812-75FA-4239-A4C0-D11C155A77B7.jpeg

LOL I wonder if the tree falling on it a few weeks back has anything to do with it.
Looking at it again, you may have what's called sprouting broccoli there, which makes a lot of leads and multiple, small heads. Just as much of a pita to grow, lol.
This spring I had a bit of grow dirt left over and I filled a bunch of big pots and I got the broc started real early....didn't matter, a couple of sunny days and she/they all bolted. I started some sweet potatos in those same pots after yanking the broc out.

yup, it's bolted. fuckin hate broccoli for that reason alone. it's a temperamental bitch of a plant and bolts at the slightest mention of heat.

That's whats killing me... we've had perfect Temps for broccoli and yet here I am with bolting plants again... didn't get a single head off this crop before they went to flower

I'm thoroughly convinced after this spring's attempt that broccoli is a winter crop. it grows slow as hell, and if it doesn't provide fruit before it gets too warm, it's months and resources wasted for some not particularly pretty flowers.

The other option is do it in hydro. at least that'd alleviate the slowness to an extent.
