Answer: Congratulations on your successful harvest! This should spur you on to more and more gardening! After you've cut the broccoli from the plant you can leave the stalk growing in the garden. New side-shoots will develop below the cut and you'll get an extra bonus of two or more smaller broccoli 'heads'. These really won't be as large as the first broccoli you harvested, but they'll help you prolong the season and get the very last morsel of your wonderful homegrown broccoli.
