Bet you'll find little green cabbage worms on your broccoli leaves if you look very closely. They are the same color as the leaves and hard to find but they generally leave frass behind. Frass looks like little black pellets on the soil or on the plants themselves. Bt (bacillus thuringensis), sold as Dipel or Thuricide will take care of the pests.
