Buddy of mine gave me a cabbage plant last spring. It grew pretty well, but by the time it was around softball-sized, it was riddled with cabbage loopers...and I mean *riddled* with them.gixxerific wrote:Not in this garden, nope, never.
Do you know Jal_UT, he can grow them huge.
I'll just buy my cabbage at the store - less hassle and costs much less overall!
All mine went to sauerkraut this year I had 7 real nice big ones almost as big as yours the biggest was 8 pounds. I found a real nice OLD OLD OLD 25 gallon crock at a garage sale for 5 bucks. It is filled with cabbage right now and smells terrible but hey the wife loves the stuff. She will enjoy it this coming winter on brats and stuff. I make a ham, potatoes and kraut in the crock pot thatâ€™s pretty good
Soap and water spray does a real nice job keeping them at bay. You have to spray the under side real good!Northernfox wrote:Nicely done my friend!! I tried to grow them once. they got destroyed by cabbage worms
The guy behind me made some screens out of regular window screen and some scrap lumber to put over his cabbage and it worked great. Those stinking white butterflies could not get in to lay eggs. And the sparrows hated them as well they love to nip on those young cabbages.
