Is my broccoli done? Should I pull it out now?

15 years ago

Hi all,

This is my first year growing broccoli. I planted two separate staggered plantings the first on March 11 and the second round on April 9th. I've harvested the big main head plus some side shoots from the first planting and it will soon be time to harvest the second planting. So is the first planting done and should I pull it out? Or will it continue to make little side shoots throughout the summer? The first plants are really big and taking up a lot of space. Can I trim off some of the biggest leaves or will this hurt future production of side shoots?
