Thank you BushDoctor. Yes, I found that article useful. I only just realized that the 62 day trine frame was from the date of transplant so that will take approximately harvest date to the 25th of August which still isn't far away. Wouldn't heads be starting to form now?

We did experience a couple of early heat waves for our area. If that impacted their development will they rebound from that?

Also, since they are about a foot and a half taller than they should be is that a problem?

Do you have any idea why one plant is yellowing so much?

Q. Best time to start Broccoli and Cauliflower

Have some garden space opening up and want a lot of Broccoli and Cauliflower this Winter. Got to start from seed so any advice on when to start sprouting them?
I’m in Zone 23 not far from San Diego county coast.

You will be in USDA zone 10. This means that you will want to start them in September for them to grow properly and in the right time frame. Both will be treated very similarly. These articles will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/broccoli/how-to-grow-broccoli.htm
