Cultivars: Early snowball cauliflower (heirloom), Violetta Italia (heirloom)

Local garden calendar recommends seeding indoors February 9 and seeding outdoors April 5. Seed packet recommends starting indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost and transplanting outside after last frost. I seeded indoors February 23 (Early Snowball) and March 1 (Violetta Italia, which doesn’t have date recommendations on the envelope), a compromise between the calendar and seed packet dates. I’ll see how temperatures go and possibly wait till May 6 to transplant outside.
