You can eat it, but it will be rather bitter. Most people do not like the flavor.

Sure it can, but when it's starting to flower it means it's getting to hot for you to have a good crop.
Broccoli can be grown as a fall and winter crop as well. Normally you can plant seedlings about 3-4 weeks before your expected last frost date. All the cole crops do fine with a nip of frost.
