Cabbage Update

23 Jan

The cabbage on our farm has been, well, not really growing.  Which is fine, it is winter after all.  But it has been sitting there very patiently, waiting for the sun and warmer weather to help it keep growing along.

FullSizeRender (2)This will be cabbage for seed.  So the heads of cabbage will have to form, split open, and “bolt”.  Or send shoots up above the crop that is there now.  Those shoot or bolts will have seeds formed.  That is the product that we will eventually harvest with our combines.

      Hi Tom, Great questions! Unfortunately I don’t have any answers for you yet because we are planning to harvest our first crop here this summer! I will keep you posted though when it comes time to harvest.
