Broccoli is a sun-loving, cool-season crop that is best grown in the spring or fall. It’s also incredibly healthy and dubbed the ‘crown jewel of nutrition.’ Here’s how to plant, grow, and harvest broccoli in the garden!
Broccoli is worth growing for its goodness alone. The annual vegetable is rich in vitamins and minerals, and is a good source of Vitamin A, potassium, folic acid, iron, and fiber.
Once you harvest the main head of a broccoli plant, it will often keep producing smaller side shoots that can be enjoyed for months to come.
Just note that excessive summer heat can cause bolting, so broccoli is best grown in the cooler spring and fall seasons.
