Hello, I'm new to this forum and new to gardening, so perhaps some of you can help me out.
I was given some starter cauliflower plants in late August and they have grown well, but did not start producing heads until recently (within the last month). I think it is likely due to the extended summer temps we had here (I'm in Virginia). Currently I have a head about the size of a tennis ball and 4 or 5 more at about golf ball size and I would love to be able to harvest a few of them, but it's starting to get cold with frost on the horizon.
Is there anything I can do to help them continue to grow as temperatures drop? At least for another 2-3 weeks?
They are in an area of the yard that gets quite a bit of sun during the day if that helps at all. I would just hate to see them come this far only to lose them.
Thanks so much for any help!
