My Winter Cabbages (January King) are really brightening up the garden right now. It’s a bit wet and a bit brown out there but the rain seems to add more zing to the green on the Cabbage leaves making them a great feature.
I planted them out in late Summer and they did survive an attack from the Cabbage Whites, as you can see by the holes in their leaves. Hopefully they’ll start hearting up nicely and with a bit of luck they will be ready some time early next year.
I’ll probably give them a feed in the next month or so with a general purpose feed. And if they were on the allotment I’d think about netting them against pesky pigeons. But since they are in the garden with two cats on the prowl, I’m thinking they’re safe for now.
What do you have in your Winter veg garden. I’m hoping for Leeks, Parsnips, Winter Lettuce and, fingers-crossed, some forced Seakale!
