Broccoli is one of my favorite veggies so it was quite a disappointment when a couple of typhoons decimated the farms. All was not lost though and a few delicious pieces were harvested.

Now a new year and so far my broccoli is hanging in there and trying to make it through the strong seasonal winds.
Not Much

Um this is actually different broccoli than what is shown on the seed package above. I received seedlings from a neighbor and these were the only broccoli which made it through the typhoons.

Yup this was pretty much it for the last season. Try try again.

Looks Good

Hey from this picture you would never know what a disaster the farms were last season thanks to strong seasonal winds and a couple of typhoons.

Mistake: Be sure to "hill up" the broccoli if your farm or garden is subject to strong winds. Most of the seedlings were totally leveled last season. The good news is things are going much better this year.

Resources

As an amateur farmer, I am constantly looking for information to make things easier, and to be more productive in my farms.

My best resource though is all of you REAL FARMERS out there. If you are growing broccoli, please take some time and post a comment with your thoughts, suggestions, constructive criticism, and links to useful sites.

Your input will be greatly appreciated not only by me, but anyone else visiting this page. Thanking you ahead of time for posting.
