Planting Summer Cabbage


These Summer Cabbage (Parel) are almost ready to go out. They have spent a few nights in the coldframe and will likely go into the ground tomorrow. They will form part of the sunburst pattern that I’m planning for the large bed on the side of the kitchen garden. Cabbages are great for this as they stay pretty much compact and don’t encroach into other plants’ space.

Parel was a particularly good variety that I grew last year. One that would happily sit in the ground until I was ready to use it and was slow to bolt.
