A couple weeks ago I harvested one of my heads of cabbage for a coleslaw recipe my wife was making. Actually, I harvested two, but this post only has picture of the purple one.
Anyway, what you are seeing above, and you might have to look closely at the full sized version, is a group of 5 cabbage sprouts that have regrown on the cut stalk after I harvested the main head.
I am going to leave these for a couple more weeks just to see what they turn into. Maybe they’ll be like brussels sprouts by the time I pick them. Maybe they’ll be worthless, but it’s fun to try.
