Broccoli Adventures

When one of your farmer buddies sends you a message on a Saturday arvo “Hey there Penelope.  We have sgitloads of broccoli.  Like 2000 heads that we can’t sell.  Do you want it?” You, of course immediately go into action! Facebook post call out for volunteers.  Txt to the TAPP teacher to ask for student assistance.  BOOM.  Within hours we had a team ready to head to the farm Monday morning.

One of the wettest weekends preluded the visit so we were thrilled to see bright sunshine on Monday.  Trailer hooked up the convoy left our HQ at Burnie High for the 40 minute drive to Preston.

Why was there a field of broc available for us?

The weather.  This field wasn’t due to be ready for harvest for another two weeks but mother nature had other ideas and our peeps were the winners.

An hour later we had harvested and we headed back to our farm to sort ready for the food hub opening on Tuesday morning.

What can you do with all that broccoli?  Here are some links to totally delicious recipes.  ENJOY!
