Growing Cabbages

This year I have been late in planting my cabbages. I don’t know why, but I forgot.  So by this weekend I need to have sowed my cabbage seeds.

I love eating fresh cabbage from the garden. They are so crisp and taste so different from the store bought ones.  My broccoli haven’t been doing too well this year. They have been attacked by butterflies, maybe I should say it is their offspring that eat up my broccoli. The cruciferous veggies  are easy targets for butterflies. they lay their eggs under the leaves of these plants and these succulent leaves become greater fodder for the caterpillars.

Butterflies or not I am going ahead with planting my cabbages broccoli and such.  I have always had great success with cabbages.  Once I cut off the heads of cabbage new cabbages of smaller size grows on the plant which are bonuses.
