It's been quite a while since I've posted anything but I should hope to be a bit more regular with the postings starting with my first cauliflower!
How To Grow Cauliflower
Cauliflower is part of the cabbage family along with broccoli, turnips, and brussels sprouts. It is important that cauliflower be planted early. It should be planted about three to four weeks before the last spring frost. If cauliflower is left to mature in the heat, it can acquire a very bitter taste.
1. Cauliflower seeds should be started indoors about eight weeks before the last expected frost of spring.
2. Seedlings need to be transplanted into the garden about three weeks before the last expected frost. Seedlings should be about six inches tall at this time.
3. Plant your cauliflower about eighteen inches apart in prepared garden soil.
