Catharine Blaine!

Go Broccoli Seeds!
We had a visit from Catharine Blaine K-8 School students in the garden today, and they were so kind to help us plant some broccoli from seed in our greenhouse! These seeds will grow to become small start plants, which we will transplant into our outdoor garden in the spring. We will update this link so you can watch the progress of your broccoli plants, and thank you for your help students!

Common Name: Broccoli
Scientific Name: Brassica oleracea
As a late summer, fall, and early winter crop there are many different varieties of broccoli, and differences in flavors and color (can be purple too!). It is very good for you providing many vitamins and nutrients such as Vitamin C.
