We harvested our first brocolli on June 26, 66 days after planting the seedlings. We didn’t cut too low on the stem, and left a few little sprouts below the cut. Two weeks later, on July 10, we had a second harvest almost as big as the first. Two harvests is about all you can get, and the brocolli was getting ready to bolt after the recent hot weather, so we pulled them and started a seedling nursery for the late-season crops.
