Romanesco Broccoli


Romanesco Broccoli (Brassica oleracea (Italica) (Broccoli))

This poor little plant had a slow start, then recently I found it covered in cabbage moth caterpillars. Yikes! I got rid of them, but not before they made "lacework" out of the leaves. I see some new growth though, so maybe he will make it to produce in the fall.
