Mike's Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

Heirloom cauliflower is a bit more difficult to grow where summers are hot because the plants prefer cool temperatures (60-75°). For best success, grow it so that the heads are forming in late summer and early fall when temperatures are cooler. Start seeds indoor or outdoors 5/15-6/1 (we recommend starting seeds in containers where they can be tended and protected better). Transplate outside 6/15-7/1. Space plants 18-24" apart in rows 24" apart. Cauliflower plants need lots of compost & organic fertilizer. Water regularly. Protect plants from slugs (use Sluggo), rabbits, groundhogs, deer and cabbage worms (use BT).
