“Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.” Mark Twain
Cauliflower heads emerge from the blue-green leaves in my garden. This heirloom variety, Early Snowball, appears to be somewhat self-blanching. I’ve tied the leaves though to keep the curds white. Maybe next year I’ll try a purple or Romanesco cauliflower.
“Green Eggs and Ham was the story of my life. I wouldn’t eat a thing when I was a kid, but Dr. Seuss inspired me to try cauliflower.” Jim Carrey
