Lookie! Lookie what I found hiding in my garden!
My potatoes are blooming! It's only been 30 days. How is this possible?
Wait. That is NOT what I came to show you. I'm just too excited about too many things at the moment. My ADHD is showing.
Ain't she Purty!? Oh, I've never actually managed to make a head of cauliflower before. What? I failed to tell you this? Like my massive carrot failure until the past couple of years cauliflower was one of the vegetables that has eluded me. I believe partly because of the fact that I lived farther South and on the coast. The nights never made it below 70 hardly and also because I am trying to grow vegetables in sugar sand. It's just dang HARD to grow good veggies here. Even with all of the composting and amending I do. But, this time, I DID IT! WAHOO!!
Only one problem. I have pretty much, no clue whatsoever as to when this head will be ready to harvest. I don't want to leave it so long that it starts to go to flower, but I also don't want to take it too soon and cut off any chance of it gaining size. I mean to mean it's massive just because until now the largest one I've grown was not much larger than a broccoli side shoot! LOL. I want it to be the best it can be. Let's not mention there is a passel of people to feed around me table. ;-)
So I'll be keeping a close eye on this winter white beauty and trying to keep the recent heat wave from letting it go to waste. *sigh* I <3 my veggies!
See you soon!
