The plants are huge...but where's the broccoli??? I bet the plant stands about 24" high right now.
And something keeps knocking my little tomato buds off the vine...what's up with that???

I'm not sure I can help with the broccoli. That is a new problem to me. The tomatoes, however, are a different story. Do you have any dogs that get into the garden? Do the kids go in there? (I know I was my mother's garden nemisis when I was a wee one.) Or how about the cats? Unless you have extremely gusty days, I'd look for a human/animal component for the buds dropping. Also, try touching one yourself. If it falls off after a gentle brush, then there might be a problem with the plant.

Well, it didn't fall off when I touched it, so I am thinking the cats are using them as batting practice.
