Cabbage

barbara added on March 5, 2011 | Answered

I have cabbage growing. It has big healthy green leaves but no head. When should it develop a head, or do I just pinch off the large green leaves? Also, my broccoli is about 6 inches high. The pimples (I call them pimples) are small and light in color. Do you think it will develop into something to eat? I am a new planter. . .thanks.

    Cabbage takes a bit to develop a head, just give it some time and do not trim the leaves off.

    Broccoli is prone to bolting. If a head is forming, that is a good sign, but just take some steps to keep it from flowering. This article will help:
