Yeah, most likely. Unless you're a gardener who has never been able to grow a head of cauliflower that even vaguely resembles a head of cauliflower. Yup, that's me!
I feel as though I've won the jackpot this year. This is the third head that I've harvested, and it's a beauty, no?
I'm sure my new-found ability to successfully grow this vegetable was a fluke resulting from 1) the time I set my cauliflower seedlings out, and 2) exactly the right kind of weather (very cool and wet) we had for the entire beginning of our summer. (Cauliflower doesn't like to grow in warm weather.)
Needless to say, I am now encouraged and will be trying it again next year. (Sure hope my balloon doesn't get popped!)
And probably the best part of this all is, as with all the other vegetables you raise yourself, my homegrown cauliflower tastes so much better than any one I've ever purchased. All three heads harvested so far have been mild, creamy and buttery . . . which all totally reinforces the reason to garden.
Still a Few Flowers in this Crunchy Summer
