This cole crop is the star of the Brassica family, and it has been cultivated for centuries. Originating from Europe and Asia, it is beneficial for its nutrient density. Cabbage is used in an array of dishes: fresh, fermented, or cooked. Easily grown in USDA hardiness zones 1 to 11, this vegetable is accessible to gardeners everywhere. It is resilient to cool temperatures, making for an excellent crop in the spring or fall seasons. In zones 8-11, it can be grown in fall and winter months.


Start by planting cabbage seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost. For an autumn harvest, sow directly in the garden in late summer. Place seeds 1/4 inch deep in soil, spacing them according to the needs of the variety you’re growing. Typically, cabbage germinates in 5 to 10 days. You can stagger plantings every few weeks to ensure a continuous harvest.


Cabbage plants require consistent moisture to develop large, tight heads. Water regularly for consistent moisture during dry periods. Cabbage benefits from mulching to sustain temperature and moisture. These vegetables love fertile soil, so incorporating compost will produce bigger, stronger heads. Harvest cabbages when the heads are firm and at a desirable size by cutting them off at the base with a sharp knife.
