Cabbage


Popular fall and winter vegetable native to the Mediterranian region, but is a staple vegetable in most countries. Good source of Vitamin C, glutamine and amino acids CULTURE: Sow early varieties in succession from early spring (indoors) to mid-summer for continual harvest of fresh cabbage. For fall produce sow outdoors in early summer. SOIL: Cabbage will tolerate a broad range of soil, but prefers sandy loam. PH 6.5-7. FERTILITY: Ensure adequate levels of nitrogen. Keep a regular watering schedule so plants do not wilt in heat. GERMINATION: Sow in plugs at 70F/21C for 7 days or direct seed outdoors in warm soil. SPACING: Transplant or thin seedlings out to 30-45cm/ 12-18” for small head varieties; 45-75cm/18-30” for large head varieties. PESTS: Flea beetles attack young seedlings and strip the leaves - control with placing row cover or insect netting over young plants. Cabbage worms attack as plants get older and invade buds - keep them covered

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
