Cabbage: From Seed to Table

Watch green cabbage grow with me!

I planted some of our first seeds on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2011.

Day 1: Planting the seeds. (March 17, 2011)

The seeds germinated over the weekend and when I returned on Monday I found a forest of sprouts.

I repositioned them under the lights, gave them a drink, and one more day to grow before choosing the strongest seedlings and starting the thinning process. ┬áThose that remain will continue to grow and those that were thinned will become our first “harvest” and top a salad today!
