Spring Garden Acre is a blog about our family's gardening adventures. We call our place Spring Garden Acre, because we live on Spring Road with about an acre. We're located in zone 6b of south central PA. We grow peaches, berries, vegetables and keep a few chickens for eggs and meat.

We've been anticipating this harvest with some uncertainty but also eagerness. We've been waiting and waiting for cauliflower. We've been wondering about the heat spells, just not sure that spring cauliflower was even possible. This morning we cut 12 heads of cauliflower weighing a total of 6 pounds 10 ounces. Our smallest head was just an ounce, and our biggest was just over a pound. Bel will blanch and freeze them for mixing with mashed potatoes (just one of our covert ways to get the kids to eat their vegetables). We also harvested a pound and a half of peas and various herbs for cooking.
