Q.Is my cauliflower ever going to produce any heads? The broccoli produced the main heads and now we are harvesting the side shoots. Is there a chance that we were sold the wrong variety for this area?

A. Cauliflower is always much slower than broccoli to produce a head. Brussels sprouts are also slow. Expect cauliflower and Brussels sprouts planted in the fall to produce in the spring. Broccoli is so quick to yield that you can place new transplants in the garden during early February and harvest a late spring crop.

Q.My sweet peas were beautiful last year and have reseeded themselves. Will they be just as attractive this year?

A. Depending on the variety you planted last year, you will probably get fewer colors. My naturalized sweet peas all ended up pink after several years of reseeding.

Q.I have the chance to use the manure from my neighbor’s chicken coop for my garden. Is it worth the work to collect and spread it?

A. Yes, manure provides nutrients and organic material. If the manure is fresh, put it in the compost pile for a few months before you use it. Mix in leaves and other brown material to complete the process.
