    Wow! That is awesome! I can imagine you’ve got 20/20 vision or a microscope for doing such tedious work. It’s amazing! It still has a shelf life unfortunately! ;(

    Broccoli is the tastiest veggie to get your nutrients from. Yay broccoli!

  • Anonymous

    Good idea for the broccoli to resemble the tree…but why not go ahead and make it all edible….a centerpiece at a potluck, say?   Little sliced carrots for the ladder steps, and the treehouse with other crunchy delicious vegetable bits and or almond slices or waterchestnuts? Even a few cherry tomatoes placed with toothpicks in the tree? An edible veggie tree.
