Growing Broccoli in a Container

On October 22 I planted some broccoli in a container to see how well it would do this fall in Central Florida. It seems to be doing great so far! Here are some pictures

Anybody else growing broccoli in a container? What kind of luck are you having?

Oh keep us posted on how this goes as I've been wanting to try it for ages but worried that it would take up too much space on my small balcony.

Looking great so far!

I think moisture control and stopping it from bolting will be you biggest challenge from what I've read.

I will keep you updated...

Moisture is no issue, I keep my garden on an automated system. Bolting, on the other hand, is always an issue here in Central Florida. There are days in December that get near 90 some times and cool weather plants get confused!
