Not bad for a cabbage that was full of holes in November. This was the cabbage the caterpillars were bent on devouring (see my previous post "what's bugging me".) Now it is ready to pick. It's not as solid as I could have wished for, and it only measures 7-inches across, but I'm glad to have a cabbage. Four more are about to follow - that is if the sow bugs don't eat them before they are big enough. I was out hunting snails and slugs tonight and noticed dozens of sow bugs eating one of the lower leaves. I looked for the "salad bar" sign but found none.
I wish I could find the tag in order to remember the cabbage variety.
