Hi folks.. I am in a quandary as to whether to harvest these broccoli or not. We are going away for 8 days in 5days time so will they be “overdone” by the time we get back? Both plants have side shoots already. Harvest or wait?
Thanks as always..Paul

Yeah thanks for that as soon as I posted that I knew what the answer would be. Will pick first thing in the morning. Cheers

Yes, you'd really want to pick them slightly before this, to be honest... they are best picked when the heads are tight with no sign of florals opening at all. You've got them just in time :)
