Replant cabbage/broccoli/cauliflower?

Post  castoral on 5/16/2010, 11:38 pm

The cabbage I had planted from seed and th broccoli and cauliflower were from seedlings I bought about a month ago. They were all doing great an I was counting myself lucky and apparently a rabbit had a feast this past week! Every one of my plants was chompped down to the stems so you can barely see them coming out of the ground. A few might be gone completely.

The ones that I can't see anything, I'm hoping to find some replacement plants, but what about the others? Will they grow back? Or just replant?

And no worries, we have put 4' of chicken wire around each of our raised beds. I thought I'd be lucky since our neighbors have had gardens for years and never had a problem, but then again, they never planted any three of these. For whatever reason it's JUST these three plants. Everything else untouched.

I don't know what zone you are in, but if you can find seedlings about the same size as the ones that became bunny food, then I'd suggest replanting. Otherwise, go with warm weather veggies.

I was worried about being able to get broccoli to form a head, so I planted rapini.... it came up quickly and the surviving plants are doing pretty well. Here it is second square from the right. (No idea why only half the square came up.) Two more squares also have rapini, just later plantings.

Ughh....thought I updated my location....I'll go back and fix that. Anyway, I'm in the very southern tip of zone 6b. The weathers been up and downs, but tonight it'll be in the upper 40s!

I know at least three places that are out of any of these (went looking for my broccoli a few weeks ago and they were out and not getting more in) but I have a few by my work I may try.

Otherwise....anyone got suggestions for plants that will work well with onions, brussel sprouts, garlic, rosemary, oregano and dill (the herbs are borders)?
