Growing Vegetables/Broccoli water-repellant


Dear Elizabeth,
Is it natural for broccoli to be water-repellant? Or is it because of chemical sprayed on it?

Dear Choo,

The way broccoli is created and grows, it has a natural way to cause water to bead up on the florets and drip through the plant, gradually.  I can't offer much in regard to chemicals, because I don't use any on my garden.

Hope that helps.
Kind Regards,
KD Liz

I can answer questions about natural gardening. We refer to our type of gardening as Orthodox organic. We do not use chemicals of any kind for pest control or plant growth. I can offer information regarding the growth of herbs and spices, as well. I can also share some canning and freezing tips for enjoying home grown vegetables year round. Growing vegetables provides healthy benefits for the body and the mind.


We live on what I believe is now termed a hobby farm. We are Messianic missionaries and raise all of our own vegetables, and some fruit. The change in the grocery budget is absolutely amazing.
