Garden: Kitchen Cabbage

After seeing the "celery plant" tip, from the bottom of a fresh celery, I decided to see if the bottom from a Napa Cabbage would work. It did, and sprouted literally overnight. Slice off the bottom end of a Napa Cabbage, use several toothpicks to suspend the bottom end in water and place in a filtered light place. Here's what it looks like after just a week.

Looks like a tasty something to raid for salad additions. I'm going to do this!

This is great! I'll be adding this to my 'getting crowded because of experimenting' kitchen window sill ;-) I love Napa cabbage!

Excellent post!

Where can we get napa cabbage in frozen Baltimore City, Maryland? What other kinds do you think we can use? Can't wait to try this!
