Details

One of the showiest and most flamboyantly adorned birds on the planet now has a rival. With blue green streaked feathers, striped coverts, an ombre train, and an iridescent crest worn on top, this broccoli is a bird of another feather. The stems, leaves, and florets show as much variation as from one pretentious peacock to another. You may find yourself being as picky as a peahen, selecting which broccolis to invite in for dinner based purely on the extravagance of their colorful display. And just like a peafowl breeder, you may begin selecting which traits you want passed on generation to generation by letting your favorite plants go to seed.

Start indoors 4-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant when plants have 2 sets of true leaves. For fall harvesting, start indoors 10-12 weeks before first frost. Spring and summer plants will benefit from protection from flea beetle, row cover works great. Uncover when plants are big and before the heads start to form. Broccoli prefers well drained, fertile soil and regular watering. All parts of Purple Peacock are edible and sweet: the heads, leafs and side shoots.

Her designs start out as quick sketches and then turn into paintings in acrylic and mixed media designs on wood or canvas. Inspiration can be found everywhere on long jaunts though the woods, playing in her garden and looking through old children's books!
