Wasn't it only a week or two ago that our purple sprouting broccoli were mere nubbins? This morning, after we got home from Florida, I walked out to the garden to find a crazy number of full-grown florets. Don't turn your back on these things, kids...they'll sneak in your windows at night and take over your house.
We steamed them (they turn dark green when you cook 'em) and served them with rarebit sauce. Delicious!
