Broccoli In Season

There is plenty of broccoli in season this week and for those of you who are intent on eating locally and seasonally, this is your ideal choice right now. Tierra has lots of broccoli this week for everyone! I hope you will all enjoy it because each of these florets are now sentimental to me since I sowed many a seed to make them possible this season.

This broccoli is called Violet Queen. If you are a grower of broccoli and/or cauliflower you may notice the leaves attached to this look more like a cauliflower. It is an interesting plant because of this growth habit, but sends out this beautifully colored, purple broccoli bouquet.

Enjoy some green and purple broccoli this week. Try them both and see if there is any difference in your opinion.
