That's A Colossal Cabbage!


Lindsleigh Carte grows a nearly 32-pound cabbage in the Third Grade Cabbage Plant Growing Contest.

For the 10th year in a row, Farmers Cooperative (North Florida) and Bonnie Plant teamed up for the Third Grade Cabbage Plant Growing Contest. The store staff delivered about 900 plants to the various elementary schools in the area.

The largest cabbage was grown by Lindsleigh Carte and weighed in at a whopping 31.96 pounds! The cabbage is bigger than the lovely young lady who grew it.

Everyone who entered is a winner. You participated, you followed instructions and you grew your own food. That is quite an awesome accomplishment!

Thanks to Pauline Cogdill, Liveoak, for getting the information and photograph.
