I don't see where you live, but when I lived in Port Orange, Florida, which is actually right at the freeze line, brocolli, brussels sprouts, etc, were strictly winter crops. I grew them a lot, but not in the hotter months, planting in late fall. In my experience, once a vegetable has bolted (yes, even the mildest of lettuce), they become bitter. Just give it up as a good try, and don't plant them again if your temps are above 80 in the dead of winter.

The heads, leaves, and stems of broccoli are edible.
