First Seedlings: Cabbages

February 21, 2012

They’re here! These little cabbages just emerged, and I’m very excited. The first seedlings of the year are always a cause for celebration.

I’ve never grown cabbage, nor onions and celery, which are in nearby trays.

I have 20 cabbage seeds started: 10 Copenhagen Market and 10 Chinese.

Have you started any seeds yet? Are you growing cabbage this year?

    I just started leeks yesterday and need to start celery this week. Last year was my first with celery and onion from seed and I had very good luck. The celery was started late, but grew to a pretty good size before it started getting too warm, but it was very sweet. The onions were rare-heirlooms which grew to golf ball size before the tops started to fall over. I harvested them, dried them in the garage and then replanted them in the fall. They overwintered nice and are starting to grow again. They should be the size of baseballs by summer! I also overwintered leeks which are also doing very well, they are already about 1″ diameter. Starting seeds is the most exciting time of the season for me! I use soil blocks instead of peat pots, for me it works better and I seem to get better results. This year I am using my own compost for soil block mix so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it works!

    I just started cabbage seedlings as well—in addition to onions, tomatoes, peppers, and squash. I’m using the same little containers you are!
