Must be the Wednesday for veggie photos.  I just posted one as well.  Nice shot of the sparkling Broccoli.

Hate to say it but broccoli actually makes me sick...I'm allergic to it...

Gorgeous - in fact, it's almost too pretty to eat! Almost. ;-)

Every morning I head on out to check what my garden is doing - & as soon as I saw that the raindrops from our overnight rain were glistening so nicely I had to backtrack to the house to get my camera!  Thanks for all your comments - Cindy I will go look for your veggie photo too!  And Cherise,  hopefully even photos of broccoli don't make you react!!

Nancy - You got me thinking.  I don't think I've ever seen brocolli growing.  Perhaps I did, and didn't realize it!  That's a very fascinating photo.

Thanks Myrl - and I think that that's one thing I enjoy about having a veggie garden.  I love showing my granddaughter the "where does food come from" story - before the grocery store that is!!

Nancy, I love gardening and love the picture.  For us broccoli is a winter vegetable. When I saw your picture I quickly went to see where you were from and for sure it was the far northwest.

Hi Marchel!  That's interesting that for you broccoli is a winter vegetable!  When I moved to the NW back in the 70's it took me a LONG time to realize that this climate means some things that grew well in Illinois just were not going to be big successes here.

Nancy, Nice photo and looks like you are having a good crop.  We grew broccoli last season and I really enjoyed being able to just pick it and eat it so fresh.  This year it did not happen.

Hi Gloria!  Our broccoli is doing the best of anything in our garden.  We've had such an unusually chilly, damp spring that our poor tomatoes are pretty pitiful looking - but at least we will have fresh broccoli!  It's my little granddaughter's favorite veggie so she thinks it is hilarious to be able to watch it grow & pick it to eat!
