“What does that mean”, “going to seed”, “yes”, “It means that the plant will produce seeds so we can grow more plants” “uhh”

That was a conversation in the garden a few weeks ago when I suggested we pick the broccoli as it looked like it was going to seed. I don’t think I  explained the process very well, so instead I suggested we let it go to seed, as we were all over eating broccoli anyway, and watch what happens. 

At the moment the broccoli has some flowers and a few bees on them, which the children think is funny for some reason and run around singing “I found a bee, I found a bee” maybe the Christmas madness is catching.
