You could choose a couple of these and bottle some for the winter.

Hi Mrs Bean

Depends a bit on the variety of the cabbage - I`m not sure the looser summer cabbages store well  like this, but the hard white "coleslaw" type cabbages certainly do. I`ve kept these well into the winter in a clamp.

You could try making sauerkraut or you may find that the plants may stand a while in the ground, before bolting.

You could always compost them too - sometimes things grow much better than you thought or you miss expected losses ( I`ve hardly seen a slug this year for example) and you end up with a glut you can`t realistically use.

Any spare cabbage I have, as well as trimmings goes to the chickens  - they love it - maybe trade some for eggs if you know anyone who has chooks?

Will
