Now That’s a Cabbage!

Isn’t harvest season fun?

I wanted to share this old postcard. I was researching cabbage pictures (you’ll find out why in our next issue of Greenwoman Magazine) and this certainly caught my eye! Those long days in the northern hemisphere can really bring forth the big ones.

I would guess this is circa 1950.
