It is starting to get too hot for broccoli, but for now it is still hanging in there. I spray for aphids every few days. A water spray usually works pretty well, but often I'll get my soap pepper spray out if the infestation gets too bad. I would not be growing broccoli if I did not love to eat it. I especially like it roasted with garlic, red peppers and sweet onions.
Broccoli will usually cooperate as a still life, giving me little trouble and no glare.
I don't plan on giving up my DSLR camera any time soon. My new iPhone does a pretty good job, but I still love the quality I get from my 50mm prime lens, which I used for the images above. The images below were taken with my iPhone 8 Plus, which is the camera I carry around in the garden.
