Tuakaus Little Stars ECC is talking about growing Broccoli from Waikato

Garden in progress

“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.
