Updating the Cabbage Picture


I was in the polytunnel the other day when I noticed how big the cabbages were, so I picked one for us to eat and it made me think of the now infamous 'cabbage and me' photo that graces my Facebook page and some of my other links.  So I asked Lovely Hubby to do an updated version.

(If I look tired on it ... it's because I was .... VERY tired after a long morning in the polytunnel, so don't worry Mum.)


The original taken I think way back in 2010.  I noticed that this cabbage is much bigger than that one. 

I guess the original photo will still grace most things as I don't have the energy to go round altering everything it appears on.  But at least I have a new original ...


... and two more rather large cabbages left in the polytunnel  :-)

  4. Those leaves would make HUGE cabbage rolls! Like following your blog as it's informative, humorous and just fun to see and hear about Wales. :) Judy

  5. The trouble with large cabbages is that you can't eat them all at one go and it means cabbage two days running and I like to vary the veg we eat.

    1. We tend to go for coleslaw one day, cooked buttered cabbage the next and freeze the remainder shredded ready for soups. Nothing gets wasted.

  7. Wow, that's huge!!!

    On a different matter, did you remove the list of blogs you liked to read or have they vanished into the ether? I read loads of them after clicking onto yours first. Guess I should have bookmarked them

    1. I've just come onto the main computer to check things out and they are still on the 'Layout' of the blog, just not visible on the page. Si I really don't know what has happened. I hope I can sort it out otherwise I am going to have to build the list up again from scratch :-(

  10. Do those huge cabbages come with a population of huge caterpillars or slugs? I remember being given a similar cabbage from a friend's allotment and placed it on my worktop for the afternoon. By the time I started to prepare veg for dinner, my kitchen was crawling with creepy-crawlies.

    1. Chickens get the outer leaves, they are very good for them. We get more than enough from the centre 😊
