This is a photo of the cauliflower I noticed in my garden yesterday. After three attempts at sowing seeds last spring-summer, I was able to plant at least ten seedlings by last autumn. Now, clearly at least one of them has overcome the dual challenge of wind and frost, so I do hope that this spring will be kind to it.
I’m not sure what I will do about trying to grow more cauliflowers in 2013 as they seem to be more effort than they are worth. On the other hand, I do find the leaves quite palatable and they are an expensive vegetable to buy.
Perhaps, ultimately, it will depend on how far I develop the new vegetable garden, where once the lawn (and dandelions) grew. In other words, will I have the room?
