This is our last segment on our autumn garden series. It features the cabbage (it is not hard to figure out how the "cabbage rose" received its name, is it?). Like our other autumn produce, we just made a row in the earth, placed in seeds and watered. I must admit that we only had a few of these do well. Some creatures were really enjoying it. Once the damage was done, we read that you could place your wood ash around each plant and that really helps to deter them. So, we will try again next year with our newly acquired knowledge.
Benefits of cabbage:
- Creamy Cole-Slaw
- Confetti Cabbage Salad (shown in picture above) (printable recipe is shared here)
- End of the Garden Soup (cabbage is the base of this recipe)

Oh!! Your salad looks delicious!! I will have to wait for awhile until I can sample this sadly as I am almost finished with another pregnancy and of course cabbage and breast feeding don't normally mix to well ;) I will keep this on my list for when I can eat cabbage again! :o)ReplyDelete
