Seynab's giant cabbage

Seynab Ali had a very rough start to her season. With the torrential rains of late May and June, she lost many crops and many other crops were stunted or very slow growing. Most of that rain-damaged field has been harvested or simply plowed in and planted again with a new succession of crops for fall harvest. Last week as she was walking through this field assessing her crops, she stumbled upon a GIANT cabbage that somehow survived the rains and thrived in the heat of July. This cabbage was not only enormous, it leaves were still soft and tender, like a young spring cabbage. It weighed in at nearly 8 pounds! Seynab was proud to include her giant cabbage in a wholesale order to a women's shelter in Portland.
