Growing Cabbage- Benefits and Instructions
Benefits of Growing Cabbage

- Nutritional Profile - Vitamin C, A, B6, folate and iron.
Use in: Soups, stews, roasted, pickled, braised, kimchi, sauerkraut.
Heads are ready when firm the interior is dense. Heads will split when over mature; rapid growth due to excess moisture and fertility will also cause splitting.
To store cabbage in the refrigerator, strip away the loose leaves and clip the cabbage so that a short stem remains. Next, wrap the head in a moist paper towel and put it into a perforated plastic bag. For optimal cold and moist storage that will keep your cabbage fresh for three to four months, store your cabbage in a root cellar, storing plant roots, head, and all. Place heads in rows either on shelves spaced several inches apart, or hang heads by a string from the ceiling. Or, store them on the floor wrapped in several layers of newspaper. Cabbage is also ideal for creating pickles and fermented sauerkraut.
