Day 91 #100happydays: Happy accident

August 23rd, 2016, 4pm

This broccoli spear/head might be the size of my thumb but I’m incredibly proud of it, even if I didn’t mean to plant it.

I grew broccoli last year on my balcony garden and it bolted, going to seed before it had the chance to form a head. I left the flowers to produce seeds, and this is what self-seeded into one of the troughs. I’ve been cultivating the happy accident ever since, and can’t wait to harvest it - I’ll even be happy with a spear!

David Wade and Adrian said thanks.
