Plant of the Month Recipes – March – Cauliflower

Would you believe that Cauliflower is related to broccoli, cabbage, kale, turnips, rutabagas, and Brussels Sprouts. This amazing vegetable is a good source of vitamin C.

  • When to Plant: Truth be told Cauliflower grows best as a fall crop, but can be grown in spring, too.
  • Zone: 2-11
  • Where: In full sun and rich, moist, well-drained soil with a pH between 6 and 7. Till the soil to loosen it to a depth of 12-15 inches. Then, work in a 3-inch layer of nutrient-rich compost or garden soil
  • Harvesting: Cauliflower is usually ready to harvest in about 50 to 100 days, depending on variety, or 7 to 12 days after blanching when the heads are compact, white, and firm, then it is time to harvest them. Ideally, the heads will grow to 6 to 8 inches in diameter.
  • Fun Fact: Cauliflower is actually a flower that has not fully developed yet.
