Do you have any broccoli plants left? I found this on Seed Saving | Sow True Seed

Quote:
Broccoli will cross-pollinate with all other Brassica oleracea, so isolate by 1 mile the second year when going to seed. Do not harvest heads on plants you intend to save for seed. Carefully dig the plants and pot them in sand. Store plants between 32-40 F. Plant back out in early spring and allow to bolt. Harvest seed pods when dry and clean by hand.

OMG…. I was thinking I’d get seed from my broccoli plants this year. Good save biig!!! If you hadn’t posted what you did…. I woulda left em in the ground waiting for seed this year. Rats!!! Another thing to add to my ever growing to do list before I leave for Dappy’s house and.... I don't think I can get what's on the list done let alone this which.... may have to wait until I get back!!! I had no clue!!! I mean…. I woulda figured out something was wrong sooner or later but woulda ended up leaving em in the ground all winter!!! I think the weather should hold until we get back. If we have a hard freeze.... it's gonna be real hard getting those out of the ground and into buckets and into the greenhouse.
