    Planted way to much broccoli! I planted 8 pots at the beginning to separate later, when I started to separate them last week in to this thing that holds 50 plants a piece I had bought 2 of them and now both are full and I also have others in regular pots so in total I have about 113 plants! [​IMG] I have that a thing where I can not throw away healthy plants what and I already composted the "bad" plants, ones I had accidentally caused to lose a leaf, broken a bit off of, or were bad In any way I could think of after I had reached 55 plants, what am I going to do?

    freeze the Broccoli after you par boil it and you will have some all year or feed some to the chickens, sell to neighbors or like other said give it away to a food bank or local church,trade for other plants. I wish I had to many broccoli plants I LOVE the stuff. I think we have about 30 planted and I know thats not going to be enough.
