This cabbage is testing my patience! Actually the 5 others I have growing that have not even reached this stage are more annoying but this one is causing me to have the most self restraint.
You see it has a heart and I could harvest it. But then its grown so much in the past week that perhaps I should leave it to get a bit bigger…. But then I really want to know what it tastes like…But then if it tastes really good I might regret not letting it get bigger so I’d have more of it. This is what it look liked 6 days ago:
I planted out cabbages as seedlings in mid April once I finally got rid of the pumpkin from the bed. Little did I know quite how long they would take to mature…..
By the 3rd June they looked like this:
By the end of June they had got a bit bigger:
They grew and grew over winter, by the end of September they looked huge, but heartless.
Even on the 11th October there wasn’t really much to see:
But now, now one of them has a heart, albeit a small one, and I could pick it. But should I?
I hope it tastes nice…….
