Ours too. The variety is "Early Dividend". I think they got overheated/underwatered at some point before transplant and it made them head up early and small, aka bolt.

To all,
Could be called "buttoning up". When broccoli is exposed to cold temps http://ohioline.osu.edu/b672/broccoli.html
Even though I live in NC, Ohio State has a great website for veg. production bulletins.
