If you cannot eat it right away, you'll have to store it in the fridge or freeze it soon after harvesting from the garden. To store it, mist the heads, wrap loosely in damp paper towels and refrigerate. Make sure to use it within 2-3 days. Never store broccoli in a sealed plastic bag, as it requires adequate air circulation. To freeze broccoli, wash thoroughly and cut the florets and stalks into pieces. Steam or blanch these for about five minutes. Plunge into icewater, drain and place in sealed freezer bags or containers. Frozen broccoli can be store up to 12 months.
