A November Harvest
It got up to 70 degrees F yesterday. I was expecting it to be in the 50's. The weather this fall has been so strange. I can't really complain though. It gave me chance to do some additional fall cleanup.
Despite the funky weather, our broccoli plants are still thriving and producing lots of side-shoots. The shoots are slower to bolt this time of year so you can leave them longer on the plant until you have a good amount to harvest.
My last cauliflower plant finally decided to head up. I'm learning that growing cauliflower in the fall in our climate is a lot easier than growing it in the spring. I'm assuming it's because cauliflower is much more prone to bolting prematurely when the weather warms up than say broccoli. I was 7 for 8 this fall. (A critter got to one of the plants.)
Finally, I meant to harvest some more Asian greens this weekend but it totally slipped my mind. Hopefully I won't uncover my beds later on this week to find that they've gone to seed.
