We just had an ice storm hit our area. This is very unusual for us. As a matter of fact, you who live where it’s really cold and it actually snows for four months out of the year, would laugh at the way our city is responding to this freezing rain/ice. It’s as though the roads are covered with snow…except they aren’t. It’s really not that bad. But, I digress 😉
What’s most exciting for us today is that post-ice, one of my favorite vegetable plants is unaffected. It has survived several freezes (without us covering it) and now continues to produce as though all that hit it overnight were a few sprinkles.
This plant is full of antioxidants, boosts the immune system, lowers the incidence of cataracts, supports cardiovascular health and helps build bones. Oh, and one more thing, it tastes GREAT!
This superfood plant is broccoli. We planted it in the fall and, as I mentioned above, it’s still going strong in the middle of winter. We have had broccoli almost every night for dinner; I also steam it and throw it into the children’s smoothie popsicles (yes, we do popsicles in the middle of winter around here too!).
If you have a garden or are thinking about starting a garden, grow broccoli! It has saved us so much money, tasted great and helped us feel good about what our family is eating.
What do you grow in your garden?
