colossal cabbage

The cabbage, thriving in a Potato Grow Bag.

What do you do if your third-grader comes home with a cabbage seedling? You make room!

True confession from the mom: “Since I knew it’d get huge, I didn’t want it to take up valuable veggie garden space, so I had him plant it in a Potato Grow Bag, with organic potting soil, some home-grown compost, and GSC organic fertilizer.”

The cabbage weighed in at 21.5 lbs. at harvest time. “We could barely close the fridge door. So far, we’ve made cole slaw, kimchi, put it in salads, and I plan to make sauerkraut for the first time in my life.”
