Harvesting Cabbages - Kakdah posing!

We kept them cabbages for far too long. It was the sight we wish to last forever, layers after layers, crowning the cabbage head at the top, welcoming everyone coming to the house. Four large containers with healthy looking cabbages attracted attention, whoever passing through the street. How we wish the plants to stay longer, but the time was up for the harvest. As usual Kakdah was ever ready to stand in as model,

Finally, what had been sown in March, was harvested in September, through a space of 6 months. One goes to Rose and another to Ila, both neighbour and friend. We keep two.

  6. Looks like huge green roses! I guess if you stay them longer, the head will much bigger. Anyway, what variety that you grow, I think they are adaptable on the hot weather.

    1. James..., for six months we had been treating cabbage plants as exotic ornamental plants in large shallow pots, until the day of harvesting.
