|hint: it's not a cabbage|
Cauliflower is a real cold-weather crop. It won't tolerate dry soil, and if the temperature goes over 80, the flower heads will bolt. So our unusually cold winter has been good news for cauliflower.
First I got big plants. The plants grew huge leaves. The leaves drew lots of caterpillars, and soon had lots of holes.

Finally last week (4 months after seeding!) I got my first peek at some little cauli-flowers. So far there are two white ones, two purple ones, and a yellow-green one!
Now I have to be patient and let them get a little bigger.
