We're heading out of town tomorrow morning, so I went ahead and brought in anything that might bolt or blossom or get eaten before we get back on Sunday. That includes a huge bunch of cilantro (now happily resting cheek-by-jowl with an avocado and some lime ... yum), two teeny zucchini, and a mutated-looking head of broccoli.

One benefit to letting the cabbage moth caterpillars eat their fill is that they get really huge and are easy to spot on the broccoli, saving me from the dreaded "oh, dear, that wasn't a floret I just chewed." Only one on this head, and it was nice enough to be right on top.
Oh, and we've got three bars of Dial dangling around the garden, and so far there's been no further evidence of deer. Of course, there have been plenty of neighbors shooting off fireworks nearby, so that might have something to do with it. Considering how deodorized the garden is now, I'm betting the soap will work even once the fireworks are finished. You can smell that soap from 15 feet away.

So, did the creatively-shaped head of brocoli taste like the normal brocoli or did the additional folds in the brocoli cranium taste different?
