    Wow, you are lucky to be growing this! I have found seed for these, but it would be too expensive to get it shipped, and I have never been able to find this in stores.

    How big do they get where you live? I am reluctant to grow cabbage because they would take up too much of my already limited gardening space and because I only cook for two. Most cabbages would go to waste because I can never use up more than a third of a head at once, and we don’t feel like eating cabbage for a whole week.

    I thought this would be awesome for me, but seeing as the seed is so hard to find… Please, upload a picture if you have a chance – I would love to see this cabbage in action!

    Cheers!

    I got these seeds through the Autumn Canadian Surprise Swap here on folia last fall. I’ve never grown cabbage before (only broccoli & kale) so it’s all new to me and I can’t offer any observation about growth and size at harvest. I’m sorry I used up all the seeds or I would offer to send you some. I’ll let you know how it works out!

    Oh, don’t be sorry! You can’t be keeping seed just in case someone would gladly take them – you would end up wasting it. I have never grown cabbage per se either, but aside from that and brussels sprouts, I have grown all brassicas. I am sure cabbage is not any trickier to grow than the others. I would love to read any new development about Early Jersey Wakefield if you don’t mind posting about it. I will eventually find seed for this, but in any case, if I don’t manage until next spring, I will order it along with some other seeds as I will be due to replace some of the seeds I have that are getting old. See? It’s not worth safekeeping seed for too long. Keep up the good work!
