Ruby Ball Cabbage seeds wanted

Post  CapeCoddess on 3/3/2016, 10:06 am

Anyone have some extra Ruby Ball cabbage seeds to trade? They have them at Territorial but with the S&H it's around $15 for a small pack.

No Ruby Ball here, but...

Post  BeetlesPerSqFt on 4/12/2016, 12:27 am

Which features of Ruby Ball make it of interest to you? ...maybe someone has an alternative to share -- or a suggestion of a cheaper variety that still does all/most of what you're looking for, if you haven't already come to a decision. I have Red Express, which are supposed to be compact, early, split resistant, and 2-3-4 lb.

Ooooo...that's sounds intriguing, Beetles!  The only reason I picked Ruby Ball is because it's a favorite of the New Victory Garden books author, Bob Thomson.  Since he's in Boston I figured whatever he grows should do will in my area. 

I'll PM you and we'll discuss a trade if you want.

Locally grown red cabbages

Post  BeetlesPerSqFt on 4/12/2016, 3:12 pm

Makes sense! That's why I picked Red Express -- it's what a local CSA was growing. I've got a big fat Red Express seedling waiting for me to start the hardening off process. But I need to assemble a covered wagon style cover before transplanting because I saw my first cabbage butterfly of the season today. I spent too much time hand-picking the caterpillars last year... by the end of the year I getting annoyed enough to yell at the butterflies and chase them with the hose spray (neither of which does any good!)

I adopted my late grandfather's Crockett's Victory Garden book when I visited my grandmother at Christmas. I bet the new one is even better, I'll keep an eye out for it.
