It looks a bit like one of those 'Walking Onions' aka Egyptian Tree Onions.

Bolting red cabbage

I always think of red cabbage as a winter veg, to be sown in the spring, planted out in the summer and harvested in the autumn/winter.  

I imagine that having come through the winter, your cabbages have experienced the temperatures warming up and decided that they're in their second year of growing and it's time to flower and produce seed to further the species.  

Have a look at your seed packet ... when does it suggest you should sow the seeds?

Ladybird - this is our current fave  

You'd better add it to your list

I don't think sweetcorn would be growing so well outside in current UK temperatures - it needs warmer weather than this to make that sort of growth.

I know what you mean Topbird ... we've not yet been caught in a rainstorm with the top down and a tree sticking out ... but it may happen one day ... and the Megane doesn't have leather seats
