Broccoli tonight?

So how do I know when the broccoli is ready to harvest? I do hope to harvest the main head and let the smaller side shoots keep growing. Does this one look ready now?
This is called Packman broccoli. I purchased a 6 pack of small plants and planted them on March 28. Took a while for them to do much, but then they seemed to grow quickly.

I'm not exactly sure to tell when it's ready, but that one does look ready. I say go for it.
I do know that if it blooms it's beyond ready.

Yesterday I picked and lightly steamed the one pictured on my blog today that looks like yours and it tasted good.

We had it for dinner yesterday (raw in a salad). It was good & tender. Its neighbor is on the dinner menu for tonight, probably steamed. Thanks for the input. I'll go check out yours now.
