Oops

Today while weeding, I accidentally pulled an onion. As you can see, it's not quite ready but very cute.

Itty bitty onion

Also, my broccoli started blooming already! Apparently that's bad. I thought it meant they were getting ready to produce bigger florets. But unfortunately it means they're getting ready to go to seed and aren't edible. So I painfully cut the tops just above new florets that are growing. Too bad too 'cause I love broccoli! If I had known, I would have cut and ate them long ago. Hopefully not all is lost (like a family friend told us). If so, I'll just pull them up and move my brussel sprouts around. I learned they may need more space then I gave them. Next year I'll not only pay attention to the recommended seed spacing but I'll also eat my broccoli before it's too late.

You can't have your broccoli and eat it too...

Yep, that broccoli has bolted. But the tiny onion sure is cute.

I'm not a fan of broccoli but they have pretty flowers!
