We planted two different varieties of cauliflower this year. One is called Amazing and I have had great luck with it in the past. The other is called Buttercream. Although a slow start, they now both appear to be doing quite well and starting to form heads. Last year we blanched and froze a bunch of it and it was soooo nice to have in stir fry, soups and stews during the cold winter months.
The broccoli heads were all harvested from the family garden last week (luckily before they set flowers)....now we have some flowerets shooting up and after those are done then we will start planting a fall crop of broccoli. I have had wonderful results with a variety called Pac Man although this year we added the DeCicco variety as well. The Pac Man definitely won out on the nice compact heads but both are great in flavor.
The zucchini are now beginning to flower and the cabbage should be ready soon. We planted both green and red cabbage called Salad Delight...I'm looking forward to making coleslaw!
The Walla Walla Sweet Onions are tempting me to pluck one....they look so good : ) In my home garden I also have Texas Candy Sweet reds and yellows growing. Last year they grew the size of saucers....and they were most excellent in flavor.
In other gardening news, many of my flowers are in full bloom...one of my favorites is Clematis....I have several varieties....but probably couldn't tell you what they are Lol! I am much more of a vegetable grower than a flower gardener....nevertheless, I love the bright colors. I'm just so excited that summer is finally here in North Idaho....today we reached 95F...The plants are loving it....and I am too! YAY for summer!
