This year is the first year I have planted Broccoli and also spinach. I have a question on both. If someone can help me soon, I would really, really aprreciate it! Spinach; My spinach looks really good, full and healthy. The past few days the top part has shot up and is becoming stalky. Do you cut back this stalky part so it continues to be full? and where is the best place to cut it? :shrug: Broccoli; Where do the broccoli heads form? Down at the base or up a ways in the middle of the plant??? My broccoli is big but I don't have any heads started on it yet. Is there anything that needs to be done to broccoli, such as trimming or anything? :shrug: Thanks in advance!!
