Cabbage Winter Jewel I am beginning to think I am doomed where the brassica family is concerned. These seedlings seemed to stall at about three inches high and then something attacked them. I have no idea what but the upshot is that I will not be growing anything over winter, other than the parsnips, carrots and leeks which are already in the ground. I will try these again next year though.
