All winter, my little RIRs have been enjoying extra leaves from my garden's broccoli, cauliflower & cabbage. Now that the winter garden in almost over, I've been pulling entire broccoli plants for them to enjoy. Here's the saga of one broccoli plant: Broccoli Before: About 2' tall & 2' across. One nice big, heavy plant with lots of leaves and a few broccoli florets left on. Broccoli During: During the dining that is. I hung it about a foot off the ground. Give the little darlings some exercise. Broccoli After:Not a whole lot left after a couple of hours. Only tough stems & roots. I have about 3 more plants left to give them. I think there's an extra head of cabbage in the garden also. They certainly enjoy every single one.
