Harvesting Broccoli

Radicchio Research

This afternoon I've done a little research into radicchio to see when I should harvest.  One site informed me I could start harvesting leaves anytime.  The head can be harvest once it starts firming up; you don't have to wait until it gets to a certain size.  Heat could spur the head to begin bolting.  We've been getting hot weather this week, so I should watch for that.  

I didn't realize it was a perennial, so hopefully it will come back next year!
