Hi, This Justin Brock at the Red Bird Mission Grow Appalachia. This week has been fun I’ve been doing a lot. I’ve been doing home visits, building more chicken tractors, and going to farms with the Counties extension agents checking farms for the donation of goats that’s coming in next week.
One story from this week that really cracked me up was from over at the Sandlins house. Back before I started as the Grow Appalachia Coordinator here at Red Bird there was some volunteers divide up seeds out of bulk bags and put the in these nice little envelope type pouches, so all the lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, and other small seed would be in them. Well the Sandlins wanted to plant them some lettuce, so they made them up a big bed and sowed there seed. When it started coming up they started noticing that it wasn’t lettuce. Time went on and it for sure wasn’t lettuce it turned out to be cauliflower. They didn’t want to waste it so they started trance planting it and ended up with EIGHTY cauliflower plants.
They have cauliflower all over there garden. They said “well it was a good mistake, we love cauliflower”. But there running out of ideas what to do with it all. They’ve done a lot of different things from eating it raw, cooked, canning to pickling it. Would anybody have any recipes for cauliflower.
