Vegetables make flowers too

I went out to pick some broccoli last night thinking I’d be able to add it to my stir fry… too late. The unusually sunny and warm weather we have had the past two weeks sent my already twice harvested broccoli plants into reproduction mode. The sugar snap peas were looking good but starting to flop over since I was lazy about trellising them this year (I couldn’t decide if I wanted them for a cover crop or eating). I started snipping off the broccoli flowers thinking I might be able to get them to go again, but they were too far gone to reproduce anything but flowers at this point. I looked down at the bunch in my hand and thinking about farmgirl flowers, I came up with another idea which lead to a bit of happiness instead of disappointment about my stir fry…
