Thanks OL   I think that he's just never really looked at cabbages before  

OH is the fruit & veg manager at the farm shop - he's said he'd be very pleased with a consignment of those cabbages so I've posted that

My OH is the Fruit & Veg Manager for a local farm shop - he says he'd be very pleased to receive a consignment of your cabbages 

Quote:  "Those are very nice cabbages."

Take a bow

Any veg growers around who can pop onto the Anaemic Cabbages thread and reassure the poster that his cabbages are perfectly fine?

Those look perfectly healthy to me - I'd be very proud of myself if I'd grown cabbages like that

How to get what you want out of a landscape designer?

Posted: 21/07/2014 at 17:12

I suggest you collect together some pictures of gardens, plants and features that you like - a sort of mood board or scrap book - clippings from gardening magazines, photographs of other peoples gardens that you like, places you've been to etc, as well as make a list of practical uses you'll need in your garden, e.g. herb patch, washing line, BBQ, patio, shady seat, children's play area, veg patch etc.  

That will give a good designer something to start with ....

Not a cabbage I know, but from pictures online only the outside leaves are dark, the central heart is pale, like a Greyhound cabbage ....... can you post a picture for us to have a look at please?

Road building anyone?

I suppose it's worth bearing in mind that if the access is only needed for haymaking, the ground should be pretty firm at that time of year.

Haymaking is rarely done in wet weather

Is the gunk just on the outside leaves?  The outside leaves go on the compost heap.
