    That cabbage just cries out for some good beef stock, a few other
    goodies, resulting in big bowls of shchi. Cabbage soup, one of the
    quintessential signs of Fall. -aem

    Cabbage is easy to grow. That was far from the largest. Here are the
    rest from nearly a month ago, they are truly monster cabbages now:

    Great pics, Sheldon, thanks for posting
    How much land are you on?
    I'd like to eventually get out of the city, at least to northern CA, if not
    back home to MN. Your pics make me miss MN and Wisconsin a lot

    I have 16 acres here where I live, more than enough to keep me plenty
    busy. I have another parcel down the road, 91 acres I rent out to a
    hay farmer. Now is the time to buy your land (never too soon), if you
    are serious do not put it off. Buy rich flat boring farm land, no
    rocky mountain sides... leave the useless recreational land for the
    pinheads who have more dollars than brain cells... three years later
    they will lose their land but your arable land will always be
    productive, profitable, and remain yours forever.

    Just put some seeds in the dirt, they grow. Notice I don't do fancy,
    old cardboard keeps the weeds at bay, hunks o' tree limbs keep the
    wind from wreaking havoc. Cabbage grows well into frosty temps. Once
    the first hard frost occurs I'll pick them all and tuck them into the
    basement fridge, they'll keep well for 2 months. I'll give a few away
    but I find dishes to make with cabbage, none gets wasted.

    Don't move here if you're not ready to irrigate all summer long. It does
    not rain here in the summer.

    And don't move here if you don't like winter fog for weeks on end with no
    glimpse of the sun, or illegal immigrants, or fires that taint the summer
    skies with dense smoke for months until it rains in October or November. Or
    $4 gas, no state budget months after the deadline, and legislators wanting
    to raise the sales tax to 8 1/4% and state withholding tax by 10%.

    Oregon is a better bet all around. I'm heading there myself. Let the
    illegals have California - they practically do already.

    Nice haul. That is one big cabbage. Is that Jilly curled up in the bed
    behind the table?
