Cabbage (It's not just for coleslaw!)
Cabbage or headed cabbage (comprising several cultivars of Brassica oleracea) is a leafy green, red (purple), or white (pale green) biennial plant grown as an annual vegetable crop for its dense-leaved heads. Our packs have over 350 seeds and around 6200 per ounce. This cold tolerant plant can be grown almost all year. We recommend succession planting on this one as well as transplanting; we use the blanket seeding into a raised bed method. It's a good idea to grow a red and a green type so your family and your farmers market customers can have a change from week to week. If you live in USDA Gardening Zone 7b or higher, you should be able to grow this food staple year round outdoors with no protection. In zone 6a and 6b, you will need protection. Happy growing!!!
