Cauliflower and Cukes
Success! This weekend, I cut the string around my cauliflower plants and noticed that sizable crowns had formed. By the looks of things, I caught it just in time as the curds were starting to pull apart.
Not huge, but considering that all of my plants last year either died unexpectedly or bolted prematurely, I am pretty satisfied with this year's efforts. Now it's time to get the fall crop started.
Today, I also noticed that the first pickling cukes of the summer are ready for picking. This variety is called 'Diamant'. It produces tons of blooms and best of all, the flowers don't need to be pollinated in order to fruit.
