Cabbage root fly?

Thanks for your commiserations Patient Gardener.

No Bridget, it wasn't root fly. This was the healthiest plant I had! The problem was that it didn't produce a head of broccoli, it just decided to live forever instead. It got so enormous, I made the difficult decision to dig it up. Needless to say, they don't tell you about this on the seed packet.

Oh, how frustrating. It's a pain to nurture something along for months and then have it not produce. I don't know what makes that happen--the range of options you find discussed on garden forums always seems all over the map. This is when it would be nice to have a rabbit like Sammy around again, who would happily tuck into all those healthy leaves.

Thanks Stacy for bringing back memories of Sammy ... Pigeons love tearing into broccoli leaves too, but I think they got scared off by this one.

Bag, I think those leaves were beautiful, you could have let it there as an ornamental plant! I love cabbage leaves amongst flowers...
