Yes, they are good companions.

They should do well together, but remember to rotate your crops, that way they will be less vunerable to pests and disease

I now have 6 broccoli plants but have no idea when I should harvest them. The tops of the plant have some yellow small flowers. There are other clusters coming from the inside of the bottom leaves.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I live in North Texas.

Thanks.

If the heads are big enough to eat now is the time to cut them. The flowers can be removed but heads are a bit past prime. Use a knife to cut the heads and the plant will continue to produce 'side shoots', until it gets to hot for them.

Thank you Amigatec. I will now make daily trips to my vegetable garden and cut the ones that are now ready.
