But it doesn't matter.
I've found a new player in the field of tree-like greens.
And its name, is Broccoletti.
It seems to have quite a few names.
Personally I am quite happy to call this little green wonder whatever it likes, because, my blogging friends, broccoletti grows faster than radish.
Yep, that fast.
I sowed the seeds for this plant on the 25th of July, making this little treasure around 7 weeks old. From seed to table in seven weeks. It most certainly beats the 16+ weeks I have been waiting for the broccoli.
Having said all that, I should probably keep quiet about dumping broccoli forever until I have actually tasted broccoletti.
Although apparently it's quite delicious, stem, leaves, flowers and all.
And I'm all for living dangerously in the garden. So...
