My First Cabbage Harvest
I still have this giant cabbage in our fridge. I still don’t know what to do with it because there are so many recipes to think about. I am thinking of coleslaw, stuffed cabbage or cabbage rolls, tamarind soup and so on. It is about 10 inches in diameter and I wish I could share it with you folks. (Smiles) It was a surprise for us to have a big cabbage in our garden. My brother in law expressed his disappointment for a couple of years of trying to grow some cabbage in his garden but they only grow small. I even thought my cabbages won’t survive because there are a lot of japanese beetles in our yard lately. I neither use chemical spray nor pesticides to keep those insects away so what I do is just to peel the infected leaves and keep watering. I think these vegetables liked the low temperature in our area lately. This particular cabbage was on the very corner on our raised garden bed, and now I cleaned its spot, hoping that my carrots will replace it. Another advantage of taking out the whole cabbage root is that it leaves nitrogen on the ground, thus a good fertilizer for the Fall type of vegetables and plants.
Here’s me and my two tater tots. I’m crossing my fingers to make a good recipe out from this cabbage.
How about you folks, do you do gardening? If you do, what plants are you growing?
