Start indoors 5-7 weeks before the last frost. Before transplanting outdoors, harden for one week, by putting outside during the day. Plant in a sunny location where cabbage was not grown the previous year. Enrich the soil with vegetable food; and firm over seed after planting. Keep soil moist and weed free. Feed every 4-6 weeks; and protect from insects. Harvest cabbage when the head is firm by cutting just below the lowest leaves. Heads will be between 5-7 inches in diameter.

Rotate the location where you plant cabbage each year, and remove the roots after harvesting, to help avoid soil borne diseases.

A late summer planting, in areas with mild winters, can provide a beautiful garden edge, or a tasty winter crop.

Wit & Wisdom: Plant near beans and cucumbers, not near broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries, or tomatoes. For a complete list of cabbage's friends and foes, read The Old Farmer's Almanac Cabbage Growing Guide!
