Just kidding, I know these are now completely inedible. No tears will be shed but I am really interested to know if it's even possible to grow broccoli in the spring in NY without some kind of greenhouse or whatever.
I bought these seedlings and planted mid April. Due to our last frost date a month past that I doubt I could have planted earlier. They were doing great but in the past 10 days we've had three unusually hot days (~90F), so they decided enough of that.
I know these plants hate excess heat but our season, like many, can have extreme heat even just a couple weeks after last normal frost date. Is the proper time to plant broccoli more like July for a september/October harvest? Even in September we can have hot days, though!
