In the above photo, the cauliflower looks kind of small, but it is actually a typical grocery-store-sized one. I was surprised we had this perfect cauliflower growing in our winter vegetable garden. I thought that a green cabbage just had some ungainly, wild leaves, and that the head wasn't forming correctly. I peeked inside the leaves yesterday and discovered this full, 8-inch cauliflower growing happily inside. Today we picked the head and we'll eat it tonight, probably steamed with a little butter and salt.
The leaves are so healthy looking with very little cabbage moth infestation. We can use the giant leaves in a stir fry too, or feed them to the chickens.
Here's another view of the cauliflower in the garden, just before cutting:
