We are back in the incredible edibles section of these Flower a Day photographs with these sprouting cauliflower blooms. This was an experiment in the garden last year, purchased from a local farm market and billed as ‘similar to sprouting broccoli’. This sounded good so I bought three transplants. The best part of this purchase was the additional glorious dark red kale seedling thrown in with them and which I hope to harvest the seeds from this year… and these beautiful flowers when the sprouting part finished. I never got much in the way of cauliflower sprouts from the plants, which was disappointing. But I let them run to seed specially to get this photograph for you today! Every cloud has a silver lining. Or it’s an ill wind that blows no one any good. Whatever expression you prefer to apply here, I hope that you like these pretty brassica flowers for today and they bring a smile.
