The weather here in Id. has been in the upper 90's and lower triple digits.
Our broccoli has gone to seed. Is this the reason for the seeding??

Not sure what you mean by going to seed? The desired part of broccoli is the flower buds picked just before they bloom out. Weather can certainly affect the size of the seed heads, but they have to try to seed in order to get broccoli. Of course once the flowers open edibility goes way down.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
