I have had an abundance of broccoli getting ripe heads all at about the same time. I like to leave them on the plant as long as possible but once they start to separate or flower they need to be picked right away. This year I have been storing the unwashed heads in a bowl of water in the fridge similar to a vase of flowers. This has been going well and they seem to stay fresh longer.

Great tip!  I am glad somebody is having success with broccoli.  This is the first year that I can remember, where I am struggling with my broccoli.

Thanks for the tips. I agree on the not let them 'over ripe' part. This is one mistake that people usually make. We let them grow in the plant for more than enough time and thus they get too ripe and unable to use. This is another blog I read about edible gardening, thought of sharing it here so that you guys can benefit something out of this too.
