Cauliflower harvest

Post  landarch on 11/16/2012, 5:27 pm

Picked a few cauliflower (and more carrots) this afternoon...rest of the plant was shredded and added to the compost pile. The cauliflower and broccoli didn't look like much just a few days ago, but came on nicely with some rain and nice weather.

Congratulations, totally gorgeous cauliflower. I have only one out of six that looks decent at this time, but yours look prettier still.

Landarch,

What did you use to shred the cauliflower plants?

Donna, I put all but the thick stems on the lawn then ran over them with my lawnmower.

I haven't decided what to do with the thick base stem and root wad...probably throw them in a long-term compost are with sticks and acorn husks. Others have suggested smashing them with a hammer to pulverize them...then into compost.

I was surprised to see that the cauliflower was equal to the size in the grocery store...they were about half that big just a week ago.

Cole crops like cauliflower, cabbages, etc can harbor clubroot so at the end of the season, I cut back the tops for my compost pile, but toss the root into the trash for disposal. Its a safety precaution so I don't spread clubroot the following year.
