A broccoli plant actually smells like raw broccoli. I have the very beginnings of a crown, and the stalk and leaves are strong. I got cages for it and the tomato plant, so they don't collapse under their own weight. Or get knocked over by the dog.

The cherry tomatoes are already blooming! (See above) If the weather stays warm, I could get ripe tomatoes in a month to six weeks. Then I can be one of those lucky victims who end up with too many tomatoes because their plant it so healthy. Maybe I'll learn how to can them.
My biggest fear at this point is the whitefly fungus. Many of the plants in the neighborhood have it, including my grafted citrus. I need to find a non-hazardous fungicide that will not affect pets or anything edible.
