Broccoli is one of my favorite plants to watch, because it looks so much like a flower as it grows. It's hard to imagine the origins of broccoli when you see it in the grocery store...
Very beginning. This may actually be a califlower plant, but this is also how broccoli looks when it starts.
I had always heard that broccoli was part of the cabbage family, but it never really made sense to me until I started growing it!
