Growing The "BEST" Cauliflower!

Growing The "BEST" Cauliflower!

Cauliflower is a cool-season crop in the cole family (Brassica Oleracea), which includes broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, collards, kale, and kohlrabi. However, it is more temperamental than its relatives. The trick to growing cauliflower is consistently cool temperatures, which is why almost three fourths of commercial cauliflower is grown in the coastal valleys of California. However, you can try growing it at home no matter where you live, but timing is important to catch the temperature just right. It also needs rich soil and a steady supply of water and nutrients.

Cauliflower likes temperatures in the 60s. In young cauliflower plants there is a fine balance between leaf and head growth. Any stress tips the balance toward premature heading, or “buttoning,” when the plant makes tiny button-sized heads. This can happen when it’s too hot or too cold. This also happens if plants sit in packs too long, or are stunted by drought or poor soil.

Now that you know the challenges, here are some of my own tips in growing these beautiful plants in Southern California.  I live in zone 22. My zone is temperamental with the constance changes in the temperature. I think it's always important to keep the plants well fertilize with a 10-10-10, this is what works best for me in my zone. I also like starting my plants from seed to avoid stunted growth. Most of the time when you're buying plants from a nursery you don't know the shelf-life of the plant, and this can be a problem.

What Is Vertigo?


This video talks about nutrition and what essential oils work best for Vertigo.

My dear auntie suffered with this condition for a very long time. She now diffuses peppermint, Frankincense and Lavender essential oil to eliminate the spinning effects in her head. It has truly been a lifesaver for her.

Not only do I believe in oils and their healing abilities, I also believe (we are what we eat). Avoiding foods that are 'toxic' is really important when you're trying to heal the body. If this 'eating clean thing' is new to you, then just try eliminating a few bad things a week to get started, because every little bit counts.

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation

This is a great remedy if you would like to lighten your hyperpigmentation.  

If you don't have Rose essential oil, just add more frankincense to the mix. 
These photos of me were taken two weeks apart and taken in the same light. Everyone has a different response to the oils, so be patient, and give it about a month to see the results. 

Good luck, and please let me know how it worked.
