A little note about this picture.... I harvested the head from this cabbage plant and left the bottom 5-6 leaves according to the instruction of Dick Raymond's Joy of Gardening. He promised the plant would grow a few new heads before the growing season was done. And look here -- five new babies are sprouting. The thing I love about cabbages is that they seem to be hardier than most plants in my garden and continue growing even in the cold, late fall of the north country.
