Got Monster Cabbage?

The Newsom family says, “Try Bonnie!”

Four generations of Bonnie Plants Believers! Daryl Newsome, center, with his children, Addie and John Tyler, show a cabbage measuring 36 inches across. The family uses only plants from Bonnie. "My grandmother, Emma Newsome, wouldn’t use anything else but Bonnie Plants. She always told me they were the best, and she was right," Daryl said. His father, Johnny Newsome, uses only Bonnie Plants, and Daryl is teaching his children to do the same in their family garden. The Newsomes live in Sandflat and share their bountiful harvests with family and neighbors.
