Harvesting and Storing Cabbage
Cabbages are ready for harvesting when the hearts are firm.
Lift the entire plant with a fork and cut the roots off at a later
stage, or, cut the stem just above the base of the lower leaves,
and discard the outer leaves which are too coarse for eating.
Mature cabbages with a good firm heart, and in good condition, can
be stored in a cool, airy frost proof shed for several weeks.
cabbages on a rack made of wood or chicken wire, do not stack them on
the ground. Once the cabbages have been cut and stored, the crop
has now finished and the ground can be cleared..

Message: I planted a row of tomatos down the center of a 40" wide raised bed. I planted a row of cabbage down both sides of the same bed. All seemed to be ok until I harvested the cabbage and found "dirty" looking leaves all the way through the cabbage. Don't know what it is...dirt or disease? Any help???

Message: I am naive when it come to gardening and my cabbage crop has been infected by some disease that is scortching the leaves. Iknow it is a disease because the soil is fertile. How do I eradicate it?
