All Hail the Mighty Brassica
Broccoli with burns from the recent heat wave
I’m still dealing with the damage from last week’s monster heat wave so most of the vegetable garden looks like a flamethrower came through it. Amazingly, even though it was hot enough hot enough to burn the leathery blue-green leaves of my cauliflower and broccoli, the heads made it through just fine.

A head of Cheddar cauliflower
They might even look better than before they were hit with triple digit temps and full sun.
All hail the mighty brassica.
I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
Go ahead, leave a comment. I won't bite.
