It only took four tries, but thar be cabbages in the garden! Last fall I had the four pound monster, but the worms ate more of it than I could, so in the garbage it went. Now, these small Gonzalez cabbages look fantastic and these two, at least, don't seem to have suffered much damage.
These cabbages are supposed to be small and perfect for intensive gardening which is why I tried them. We harvested the one on the left for last night's dinner and it was just the perfect size for us. I sauteed it up with some garlic, butter, onion flakes and salt and it was stellar. I was surprised that, like garden broccoli, it had a hint of sweetness to it that you don't get out of store broccoli or cabbage. I wonder if that's because of the size and variety or because it's not commercially grown.
Either way I did it, and I'm as happy as a clam.
Happy Mother's Day!
