Cabbage Earliball

The cabbages are powering along! This is the most advanced at the moment. It's the variety 'Earliball', and it won't grow as big as other varieties. That's why it suits us just fine.
I planted the seedlings in March, when the soil was still warm and they could get a good start. Planted a few weeks later, the soil would have been far too cold and they would just sit there, doing nothing.

Been there, done that. It's very frustrating, watching seedlings for months on end, doing nothing. But you can't blame them, who'd be keen to sit in cold soil? And grow?? It took me a while to figure all that out. :)

That is a really nice head. Tried growing earliball many times it was fun for the caterpillar but not me;-).They grow very quick in the hills. Ours takes forever.

Could you put some bird-netting over the brassicas? Just over the containers? So that the cabbage moths can't land on any of the leaves?

Can't wait to eat the cabbage. :)
