The gardener who set up my garden initially told me that he was planting cabbages and cauliflowers. Both plants looked the same, and I wasn’t experienced enough to question him.
The plants grew very well until they started having tiny cabbages. Then the pests discovered them, and there was no stopping the multiple worms and bugs that ate up all the lovely leaves. All my neem oil+detergent spraying had very little effect since the leaves are so closely packed. Got a decent crop of about 10 cabbages, each one the size of a large orange. It was enough for one yummy dish!
And that’s the cabbage farming story:)
