This Time I Mean It!!!!

Every Fall I when I see the amount of Purple Cabbages in my garden that failed to mature, I swear that I'm never going to grow them again....

But then, in the Spring, those tempting seed catalogs arrive in my mailbox........and I fall for it all over again....

All those beautiful cabbages, in all those beautiful shapes and colors, with all those beautiful promises of an early harvest....

And I remember how wonderful it is that slugs seem to leave the Purple Cabbages alone....

But this time, as I look at my long row of unharvested, miniature Purple Cabbages, I mean it.....I REALLY MEAN IT!!!! I'm never growing Purple Cabbage again!!!
