Cabbage Patch

Are you bad with plants?  Can't seem to keep them alive?  I have got the perfect one for you!  Cabbage!  I tried planting it this winter for some color around our front door because the lady at Lowe's told me it was hearty.  I was skeptical, assuming she didn't really know how bad I was with plants, but I went for it anyway.  I'm so glad I did!  I have totally ignored these plants, except for the first couple weeks when I was determined to make them live.  I always start out with good intentions but then I forget about them.  I did have a little trouble with slugs at first (I guess they were trying to eat their veggies ;)), but I think the cold killed them off after a while.  I will definitly plant these again next year and maybe try some different varieties. Can you believe how vibrant the purple is?  Who would have thought that cabbage would be so pretty!

Thank you to my sister for the beautiful picture!
