Spring Cabbage - in November!

I saw on the local news this week that the Christmas sprouts are already ready and that they might be in short supply for Christmas dinner. I have a similar issue with my spring cabbage. In Late August I planted some spring cabbage Excel (plants supplied by Dobies) which have grown so well they are now ready to harvest. Rather than risk loosing them to the winter weather they'll be on the dinner plate this week.

After Monday morning’s frost we had a superb sunny day. We made a trip to the plot to check for frost damage, pick some vegetables and cut back and protect our dahlias roots against anything winter might bring. That’s the plan. To my surprise the dahlia foliage was still green . I'd expected it to be blackened there was little sign of frost damage.
