Seed Saving: Cauliflower and Kohlrabi

We harvested seed from our Cauliflower and Kohlrabi last week. Kohlrabi is one of the new things that we planted in our garden last fall. We really enjoyed it and definitely wanted to collect some more seed from it. When our Cauliflower from last fall went to seed it grew so tall, I could hardly believe it. It was up to the roof line of our house probably 6 feet tall and had tons of seed on it, so we let it grow because it was great forage for the bees in the spring. Finally the seed pods where fully ripened and we were able to harvest the seed. We got a ton of seed and my little guy helped me to harvest it all. You collect the seed from Cauliflower and Kohlrabi in the same way that you harvest broccoli seed. Check it out here.

My little helper.
We harvested over 400 cauliflower seeds.
