Thank you.  I enjoy growing the cabbage for some reason. The purple ones this time of year with the heavy dew in the morning is really pretty. Most are sold fresh. We are going to try storing some and see how they sell into the winter. Any tips on storage?

All I know  about  storage is when I first moved up here the guy nextdoor grew and stored cabbage.  He grew a special variety that was made for storage. Has about a 80 x 160 building with  a 20 ft ceiling that they would  stack thousands of what he called 2000 pound cabbage crates floor to rafters. Once sealed up it just had to be kept in the 30's and come St Patrick Day it all left in tractor trailers for distribution.  Only tip he gave me is nothing else in with it because most other storage veggies  release Co2 gas that will cause the cabbage to go bad early. The humidity also was monitored often.
