Cauliflower is a delicious vegetable that provides tons of nutrients to your diet. Being a cold weather crop, Cauliflower can be planted in early spring, a few weeks before the last frost. Cauliflower leaves are frost tolerant but their crowns are not, so if planting for the fall be sure to cover if a frost comes early. Cauliflower thrives on consistency, so having an even temperature, fertilization, and watering routine is the key to success. When cauliflowers are 2 inches wide, it may be necessary to clothespin the leaves around the crown to ensure a white and tender harvest, this is called blanching. Plant in full sun with well draining soil. Once the cauliflower starts to mature, you will be rewarded with tasty white florets with a crisp and crunchy texture. Use in a variety of recipes or enjoy raw.
