Cauliflower in Nor Cal - please share your wisdom for success!
For the first time in my life, I am venturing into growing Cauliflower during this Fall/Winter season. I have 6 seedlings of Cheddar Cauliflower variety (an heirloom type), and just got them in the ground this morning.
From what I've read so far, it's a good crop during Fall and Winter here in SF Bay Area. I wanted to get some tips regarding what to avoid, what type of fertilizer to apply and how to save it from slugs (if such risk is common), etc. By the way, I am growing it organically and would prefer to avoid harsh pesticides etc.
They are growing in the spot where I had tomatoes and cukes during the summer.
Thanks in advance!
