A little cabbage seedling
A while back some cabbage seeds were sown in some containers by the shed - in hopes that something green might emerge from the frigid soil in the backyard. Squirrels foraging for fallen acorns dug most of them up, but a few of them survived, thankfully.
Anyway, I went ahead and relocated 4 of them to the protective confinements of the largest raised bed, and we'll see how they'll do in there.
Slugs, cabbage worms, and cabbage loopers really do a lot of damage to cabbage each year, but thankfully there are some microbial control methods that will allow me to keep them in check later on. :)
