Flushing Cabbages

Although this looks a bit odd – like some kind of hybrid vegetable experiment gone wrong – it’s nothing sinister!, just the second flush of cabbages that comes along after the main head is cut. Cute little mini cabbages, just as useful as the first big one. (Such great bang for your buck brassicas – they just keep coming and coming…..) When you cut your cabbage leave behind those straggly bottom-most leaves and in a few weeks time you’ll see little buds forming, the stirrings of another round of cabbage for tea.
