Thanks everyone on the cabbage plants, they did good with no problems with insects except for a few grasshoppers. I hope the rest of the winter crop does as good.

Hi Richard

How do you eat your Cabbage.? Is there a favourite recipes for Cabbage that you can share with us?

Of course you can add your recipe to the Cookery Forum instead.!

Those cabbages look perfect! Did you protect them in some way or don't you have the dreaded cabbage white butterflies?

We do have the cabbage white butterflies but most of our butterflies are now gone, the only thing I saw on the plants were a few grasshoppers and that's it. Yes, I thought the plants looked great.

I took a walk outside to check my vegetable garden, I did cut one cabbage the other day, its a medium size cabbage. I also noticed a honey suckle vine full of butterflies. (photos below) Temperature now is 68 degrees or 20C, suppose to get up to 24c this afternoon. Sunny and Bright outside.

Hi Richard

Looking good from here. Did you enjoy eating your one Cabbage. How did you cook it? Might be a question for the Cookery Forum.

Sounds hot, hot, hot in the afternoon - where you are!

What a beautiful Butterfly - any idea was species - Love to know?

No fancy name for this butterfly, it's just called a "Large Yellow" in butterfly terms, I live 8 miles West of San Antonio, Texas in a small town called Rio Medina. Its a farming and ranching Community. Been in this area for years. Photo below of Texas, San Antonio is in South Central Texas.
