Fall Garden: Broccoli & Cauliflower

Fall Garden: Broccoli & Cauliflower
My fall garden has not been as successful as my summer garden.  I need to figure out the timing to put the seeds in.  For the first round of beets I put the seeds in too quickly and the soil got too warm and the beets pre-maturely pushed themselves out of the soil and did not get very big.
here are the beets that I am going to throw in the compost pile. 
My broccoli first started to head the end of november and did not grow much for weeks.  We finally had some cold weather about a week ago and that triggered them to grow bigger.
Here is the picture of the broccoli from the end of november.
Here is the broccoli 2.5 weeks later.
I just found out that my cauliflower just started to grow heads this week as well from the frost and rain we have had.  I don’t think I will grow these next year as they take up a ton of space for 1 head…unless they are amazingly delicious.
