Cabbage is a dense leafy plant in the brassica/cole family (also including broccoli, cauliflower, kale, mustard, arugula, brussels sprouts, etc.). Cabbage is usually green, although red cabbage is also widely available. Savoy cabbage is a subset that has much curlier leaves.
|Planting Time: Mid-MAR through Mid-APR (in central Maryland)|
Harvest Time: JUN-AUG (in central Maryland)
Spacing: 15-18” apart in rows 32-36” apart OR 24" apart in a hex pattern
Should be planted with other members of the brassica family. Seed indoor 5-8 weeks before you intend to put out - in my case, this is about the last week of January.
Cabbage fertilization procedures I've seen include:
Cabbage can be frozen, although it is not particularly good when preserved that way - just blanch it in boiling water for about 5 minutes, cool it down in ice water, drain the water, then put into a ziploc bag for freezing (removing all of the air, of course).
