Vegetable Garden: Growing Cool-Season Vegetables
By: Julie Day
Cool-Season Vegetable #4: Cabbage
Cabbage likes rich soil with plenty of compost to feed the tender, tasty leaves. While cabbage can tolerate a light frost, it can go to seed if exposed to temperatures below 40° F for long periods of time.
Plant seedlings about a month before the last frost in the spring, and continue planting and harvesting as long as temperatures stay between about 40° and 70° F. When you plant your cabbage, don’t forget to add in some kale, Swiss chard, and kohlrabi for good measure.
