Side Shoots

This lovely specimen from our garden was just steamed and quickly eaten by the entire family (the kid, now three, loves her veggies) before it could make its way to the dinner table. We're still new to the broccoli game, but understood that after the main head is harvested, the side shoots will provide more, if smaller, harvests for a while longer, before the plant has run its course. This side shoot was noteworthy not just for its deliciousness, but because when we sliced it off of the plant an hour ago, it was nearly six inches across, slightly larger than the main head that we enjoyed in January.
