    Can you use tap water.

    As pretty as the leaves look, a person like yourself is most likely to eat the leaves as well.

    is this a one shot deal kind of plant, or will more heads pop up if you don't pull up the rest of the plant

    I think they'll be fine…..Donald

    Don’t know what planting zone you’re in but here in zone 8 it’s much too late for both broccoli and cauliflower……Donald

    Hey! I'm a "first timer" in the garden this year (loving it!) I have several cauliflower plants but none have started to grow a head yet.. Why? Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? I also planted several broc (way too close together) and they took over so I cut them down to the bottom stem.. Will they come back or are they finished? I love watching your vids and would love spending a day with you learning! Thank you:)

    Thanks Donald! They are cheddar broccoli. I'll look into the approximate size.
    

  • webcajun 11 months ago

    You should know the variety and how big they are supposed to get. Most times I harvest mine when about 75% the approx. size…..Donald

    How do I know exactly when is good to pick Cauliflower? One of my plants has a huge head, but it tastes a little bitter. Should I wait longer? How do I know when they are maxed out on size?

    don't like cauliflower. tastes like sand

  • William 11 months ago

    The leaves are good to chop up and throw into a soup, or something. They need to stew a little bit.
    The same with broccoli.

  • Susan Olvera 11 months ago

    The leaves stew up just like green. I make them with a ham bone and onions. Thanks for the info about cauliflower. First time growing and after seeing your video, I see it's time to harvest mine.

    Cauliflower is a cool weather crop. With this heat I don't think they stand a chance…..Donald

    Ty!
    

  • webcajun 11 months ago

    I’ve yet to have bitter Cauliflower. I can only guess if you’re still growing some now it may be the heat…..Donald 

  • Patricia Mcleod 11 months ago

    I love watching these. I have learned so much.
    What I need to know now is why is my cauliflower so bitter tasting when I harvest it? and I do not get a pretty head???? help

  • webcajun 11 months ago

    Unlike broccoli the cauliflower is a onetime harvest. Never tried the leaves…..Donald

  • Barbara Evins 11 months ago

    Donald, what about the leaves? Also, once harvested is that it for the plant?

  • webcajun 11 months ago

    Some you do have to wrap the leaves and other varieties do it on their own. I've been planting Snowball and hadn’t had to wrap the leaves…..Donald

  • I'm just learning about this, but they say that using leaves along with the Back to Eden style of gardening is the best of both worlds. No digging, no tilling, no watering and no weeds.

    I just mulched my veggie garden too.  Leaves are free, and you don't have to buy and carry heavy bags of mulch from the store.  Great tip.
