In February I raised a punnet (6) of Mini Wombok from seed. They were quick out of the ground and were one of the first seedlings that I raised from seed to go into their beds. They have also been the first brassica that I raised from seed that I have picked this winter.
I picked my first last week, it's a beauty.
The chooks think it's a beauty too. Muriel is quickly drawn to the cabbage
and takes a nip - you're awful Muriel (thanks Baz)!
I am glad that I raised Mini Wombok, cause it's a great size - big enough for a couple of feeds but not too big for the fridge and not so big that you groan thinking that you must eat cabbage again this evening.
It had no issues with aphids, snails or any other pest but I suspect that it just good fortune rather than some intrinsic characteristic of Wombok.
Here is the Wombok growing near the Red Drumhead Cabbages.
I am contributing this post to Liz's Saturday Spotlight.
The heads could have been tighter but I was happy to pick it and eat it as it was.
Happy Wombok growing!
