The only solution I've been able to find involves a motion detector alarm that wakes me up in the middle of the night and a .22 with a flashlight. The first few nights I'm up like a new parent but it quiets down after that.

Couldn't look any better, slick. Cauliflower is one of the few garden vegetables I've never grown.

Thanks. We planted our first in the spring and they didn't look near this good. These are the first three heads as there's more coming on.

Slick, when did you set out your plants? Around Labor Day I'd guess.

Thanks, Ali. These were planted, watered when need and pretty much ignored.

You really ought to write a book on 'How to grow cauliflower' Slick :P
