Cabbage(and Cauliflower) is among the most pest prone plants among vegetables and hence the most polluted(with pesticides) vegetable available in the market. We had in fact dropped cabbage from our vegetable shopping list along with cauliflower.
We didn't have much hope when cabbage was planted, but it turned out to be a good one - we had good 1.5kg one in the end. There was a mild pest attack in the end, but it didn't affect the cabbage health in any way. They ate away some of the outer leaves. I guess the copious rains during the period helped. It is a 60 day crop and it seemed pretty slow initially, but after 45 days, it grew rapidly pushing other plants around out of its way. We have had couple of cauliflowers, but small sized ones - so we were a bit surprised at the size.
We have one more plant growing pretty healthily, but a bit smaller size one. It is just beginning to fold its leaves and hopefully we should harvest it couple of weeks time.
