Cabbage has such a cool texture. I love to tuck it into my flower beds for almost instant, bold texture. The key to keeping your cabbage really nice looking is to begin bug prevention really early in the season, before there is even a problem. I usually sprinkle an insecticide around the base of the plant every couple weeks (Corey's Insect Killer or Diatomaceous Earth).
We will be planting our cabbage for fall harvest in about 2-3 weeks (depending on weather)!
