Cruciferous!? Yuck. Oh, right, broccoli. My favorite!

Wow. The broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprout seeds germinated in record time.  Cool. Guess the heat and humidity is good for something. It took will power and determination to suck it up, go outside, and go through the process of planting in our outdoor sauna. A million years of evolution made me do it. If Great Granny Lucy could do it so can I. That kind of thing.
Imagine my shock when I checked my cauliflower seedlings and saw that a bird had snacked on more than half of them. On a happier note I found twenty random parsley sprouts from the plants I let go to seed (see June posting). These will winter over in pots enhancing out winter dinners. Lovely. Looking forward to a pleasant Southern fall and a mild Southern winter.
