We were so excited since we knew my cabbages have grown well and it's the best time to harvest them. My kids were going to rush to the cabbages but I always tell them to do their assignments like weeding, finding bugs and watering vegetables before enjoying their most exciting time.
In Osaka, warm days have continued even in the beginning of November, when temperature usually starts going down. So weeds also have grown as well as my vegetables. I told my son how to use a sickle. My daughter doesn't love to do chores but love to harvest vegetables and fruits and she tried to avoid her assignments spending a while watching fruits in other gardener's plots.
As you see the photos shown below, my cabbages are almost intact with much less damage by bugs and have beautifully round-shaped hearts. A gardening friends who has his garden beside mine envied me when he saw my cabbages.
My well-grown cabbages have so thick and hard trunks that my son had trouble in cutting one of them but eventually he managed to cut it out.
"What is today's dinner, dad?" Well, I'll show you it later in my blog.
