Waiting on the Cabbage January 21, 2010

I’m an impatient gardener, I’m sorry to admit.  I like things that grow quickly and provide instant gratification.  I should be a radish farmer.  You get the seeds in the ground, and before you know it, little red orbs are pushing their way above the surface, a signal they are ready to be pulled and eaten.  Around 30 days.  I have Watermelon Radish seeds on the way and am anxious to get them planted, because they will be done before time to plant tomatoes.  I planted cabbage, oh say 9 months ago and am still waiting for them to form heads.  OK, not quite 9, maybe October.   Cabbage takes about 100 days.  I still can’t tell if they are forming heads yet.  I think so but am not quite sure.  Can you see it?

    I’m glad I’m not the only one dying for instant gardening gratification. I’d be so tempted to just eat that cabbage right now.
