Marietta GA zone 7

|Planted Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts, and Cauliflower April 7th in good Black garden dirt about 10 inches deep in raised bed. I mixed in some garden lime and 10/10/10 fertilizer. PH is now 7.
Plants grew large but produced no heads. What did I do wrong?
Potatoes, peas, beans, zucchini, tomatoes and everything else did well.

|April is very late for cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli.... And taters.
Surprised to hear the taters did well.
Cabbage might produce a head in Marietta, but, people are generally advised to plant collards down this way.
Broccoli produces down here, but.. Plant in Feb, or november... Approx.
Otherwise... Sounds good. Post some pics!

|Yes, you simply planted too late for your area.|

|Try those cabbage-y things again in the fall. They like to mature in cooler weather. Start seeds indoors in September if you can. They don't get as leggy if you can keep them cool at night in the a/c.
In spring, I plant all those cool-weather lovers by February but if it warms up early, they don't do as well or taste as good as the ones I grow in the fall.
