Cabbage is a hardy, leafy, cool season vegetable that can tolerate frost but not heat. It can be difficult to grow cabbage, but it is not hard to learn how. The trick is steady, uninterrupted growth and at least 6 hours of full sun each day, well drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, with pH between 6.0 and 7.5. Before planting add well aged compost to planting beds. After that sow the cabbage seeds ¼ to ½ inch deep and space the plants 12 to 24 inches apart. Do not plant cabbage with broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries and tomatoes, but you can plant them near beans and cucumbers. Cabbage requires regular, even watering and clean garden. Harvest cabbage when heads reach desired size by cutting through the stem with a sharp knife before cabbage heads start to split.
Absolutely delicious, perfect way to make cabbage a favorite vegetable to the children and adults too. Tasty, easy to make and easy on wallet, roasted cabbage with lemon can be addition to a meal or the whole meal.
