CABBAGES - A WINTER CROP
Here is one of my dummy first year homesteader mistakes:
With a German planting schedule in my head, I planted cabbages, beets and salads in spring. However, in Southern California with its high temps, this is rather harsh on these poor plants.
I harvested some but definetely not the amount that I planted and the plants as such were soo small. These 7 heads barely make the 4 lbs mark.
Now however, is great planting time for these guys and guess what is sprouting in my kitchen right now...
