|Here's my two year old son Fabian showing how big the red cabbage was a month ago.|
In fact the green cabbage grew so well that half of it is too big. Stores can't sell 10 lb cabbages and we can't fit them in our CSA boxes. That's left us with a storage problem, as we need to get them out of the field and into the cold until we find a home for them. Aaron filled his entire ice house with double stacked bins and still there was more to go, so they started just piling cabbage on top of the bins, clear to the ceiling.
Finally we found some processors and prepared foods departments who could take the extra large stuff to make cole slaw and sauer kraut. We'll be getting a large batch of that sauer kraut ourselves, so look for that this fall. Slowly we're starting to dig our way out of this cabbalanche.
