My cabbage called 'January King' is growing nicely and I can see the heads developing. There's some pest damage on the leaves - I think this is mostly caterpillars from Aug-Sept (maybe even Oct). I'm sure slugs and snails are nibbling a bit too. However, the plants are looking good. These were grown from seed in a glasshouse in June and then planted outside.
The seed pack says,
"A very hardy variety with distinctive purple tinge to the leaves, and really solid hearts that hold for long periods in the cold weather."
I'm thinking they'll be ready to eat in March? I adore the flavour of cabbage and looking forward to eating my own organic home grown results! Fingers crossed they turn out well.
