Emergency Harvest!!

Notice anything different??  YUP!  We harvested the cabbages today!  Cabbages are a cold weather plant and the heat was just not working out for this pair.  On top of it all, we found alot of little holes in the leaves which meant a whole lot of creatures were munching....  So, the kids made an emergency call to their cabbage expert.... and when Jaja says harvest, we harvest!

Of course, Mommy had to help and we had to move fast as it was starting to get dark and we had to film document everything and weigh them for submission, etc. etc.

Here they are with the pictures that they will turn in for contest submission. 

T's cabbage head is approximately 15" in diameter and S2's is approximately 16" in diameter.  As you can tell, it doesn't matter to T that her brother was definitely the winner between the two.  She was just really proud of her cabbage!

We tried to weigh them using my bathroom scale but the cabbages were too big to get an accurate reading and I wanted a good picture of the cabbages sitting on the scale.  So their weight is going to have to wait until tomorrow.  We will weigh them at Publix and get their true weight.  Stay tuned!
We are all really sad that it is all over. 
These cabbages became a part of the family these past couple of months!
