Green cabbage for 3rd grade class contest.
Sponsored by Bonnie’s 3rd Grade Cabbage Program.
Cabbage plant measured 35" leaf to leaf at the base, weighed 7 lbs 12 oz, and produced an 8" head. The head by itself weighed 4 lb 7 oz.
Not too bad, considering we kind of mistreated and ignored this plant this year.

Cabbage normally tends to reach to a mature height of 30.0 cm [imperial: 11.7 inches] so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.
Cabbage tends to enjoys a full sun position, which is ideal for your garden's sun profile.
Remember to water moderately.
Ensure your soil has a ph of between 6.0 and 7.5 as Cabbage is a acidic to alkaline soil loving plant.
