Brassicas in NorCal - when and how to start?
I've been reading various postings related to brassicas, but I haven't seen anybody post who is in my climate, and I don't see the CA forum moving very quickly. I asked the same thing of my UC master gardeners a week ago and haven't gotten an email response :(
When do I plant cauliflower, cabbage and brussel sprouts? And do I use seed or young plants?
I have an area that currently has dying pea plants and bolting lettuce that I'll pull out and use. This area gets shaded about half way through the day. In the fall it won't be so shaded because the leaves will have died, but that won't be until Oct I'd guess (new house, not totally sure). I also have a very small area near some onions that gets better light, but I probably only have room for maybe two plants there.
I thought I read that they don't need a lot of sun (or is it heat) as young plants. Any advice you can give me would be great.
