    While inspecting the garden this morning I found two cauliflower plants with the flowering heads. They were about fist size, and impossible to see unless standing over the plant.. To insure they are white and not sunburnt I wrapped the inner leaves around the head as shown in the last two pictures. Cauliflower is a cold weather crop and is usually planted in July so they will mature in the cool fall season. It will be interesting to see how well they produce by starting in April and picking in June. This is my second attempt at growing these plants and the first time was a disaster many years ago. There are a total of 12 plants and only two have visible flowers.
