Pam, in Napa the Master Gardeners trialed broccoli last fall. The experienced gardeners used row covers to exclude the cabbage moth very successfully, and the flavor of homegrown really is better than the grocery store. We were hit or miss with the aphids; some of us had too many but most of us had tolerable levels of aphids. I found that blanching the broccoli in boiling water rather than steaming it took care of any I missed while washing. anyway, good luck with the fall winter garden. I'm growing most of the same things you are in Napa County. Pat Hitchcock
