Cabbage is one of the most important of the garden crops and should always receive careful attention. The first thing necessary is good seed, as without this failure is sure. Since our packets sow so much, remember that cabbage seed is viable for about 5 years depending on how it is stored. The soil should be deep and rich. For early crop grow plants in hot beds, transplanting to cold frames and then as early as possible after danger of freezing to the open ground. Cultivate often and keep well watered. For late crop sow seed in open ground and transplant, or some succeed finely by sowing seeds in hills where wanted and thinning to one.
