That's a fabulous iris! I think I can detect a slight grey tinge on the back of the cauliflower leaves which suggest fungal root rot to me.
my iris have not tried to bloom yet, and my cabbage is just starting to roll into a head...My lettuce is late, no beets no carrots, and the spinich is all turning yellow with brown spots on it. :( I think I buirned it with Miracle Grow. I am trying a manure tea right now as A SIDE DRESSING. It froze Thursday night, so I might not be as warm as you are. SIGH!
I know nothing about cauliflower growth - it must be so frustrating watching them go like that without knowing why. Something in the soil maybe?I love your iris and its such a beautiful colour - thats one if I saw it in a garden centre that I would pick too - they are a favourite of mine in the garden in May.
The fungal root rot referred to in one of the earlier comments may be what we call "club-root" in the country of your birth, Keewee. If this is the case, the only answer I know is to avoid planting brassicas in that part of your garden for two or three years. Some of the healthy plants in your photos are also brassicas, so if it is club-root, possibly the disease has yet to reach their part of your garden or perhaps they are less susceptible than the cauliflower.
The iris are pretty but gosh, your purple kale and cabbage make a gorgeous picture! Sorry about the cauliflower. Did it get too warm?
