Did you know broccoli and cauliflower can grow in the spring and fall depending upon the variety, the region, and the time planted? These two crops do best when temperatures remain between 40 degrees and 70 degrees F. They need to mature during cool periods, so they do well in most areas if planted in late summer to mature in fall. In spring, broccoli/cauliflower are planted early enough to mature during cool weather. Temperatures below 25 degrees F can damage or kill these two crops. There are so many ways to eat this vegetable. One recipe that my family loves to have that features broccoli and cauliflower rice is on http://garden-2-plate.blogspot.com/2015/11/crock-pot-broccoli-beef.html .
