Broccoli is one of those vegetables that is either loved or hated, with few in between. For broccoli lovers, consider growing 'Premium Crop' broccoli for the large, tight main heads that are ready for harvest in about two months' time. Bite-sized heads will form on side shoots that can be harvested at will. Broccoli tastes best when grown in cooler weather, so plant in early spring before the last freeze or in late summer. That said, this cruciferous veggie grows best in full sun, and give them room to grow, spacing them 18 inches apart. FYI, broccoli is a favorite of aphids, but they can be controlled with organic insecticidal soaps, neem oil, a strong blast of water, or by growing broccoli under row covers.
