What are the pros? Robust plants
What are the cons? Praying I get some cauliflower
I planted a fall crop of cauliflower. I did my research and decided to get some Purple of Sicily seeds and started these in late July. I had my hubby build me some new beds and I had them planted late August. They plants GREW. They are huge and in early November they are popping out of the beds. I have the tiniest little heads covered completely by leaves (I had to dig around to find them). Zone 5 usually is freezing around this time of the year but we have had quite the awesome warm spell (70's when we usually are in the 40-50's with overnight lows below freezing). I am afraid that I will not get anything from my cauliflower babies. This could be completely my fault for not planting early enough or over crowding the beds. I will lay a little more organic fertilizer down and I'm covering these beds with some plastic row cover and praying for a miracle. I had 100% germination rate and gave some away to fellow gardeners. I'm going to try again next season.
