Growing Cabbages In My Garden

I had tried growing cabbage once in flower pots and the cabbage harvest was quite small. Again, I bought a packet of cabbage seeds and germinated the seeds.
Photo #1
When the seedlings were about 2 to 3 inches tall, I planted them individually in separate pots.
Photo #2 - Two weeks after photo #1.
They look so like Chinese Gai Lan or Chinese Broccoli or Chinese kale vegetables.
Photo #3 - The leaves are thick and flat with thick stems.
Photo #4 - The leaves are glossy and slightly waxy,
The water will run off the surface of the leaves.
Photo #5 - Three weeks after photo #2.
Photo #6 - About one month from photo #5.
Photo #7 - About 2 weeks from photo #6.
So excited to see the baby cabbage forming in the centre.
Photo #8 - About 1 month from photo #7.
Photo #9 - From this photo, you can see the growth of the size of the cabbage.
Photo #10 - This plant looks different from the others.
Photo #11 - This cabbage plant is growing new shoots.
I wondered if it is over matured.
Photo #12 - Finally, I decided to harvest 2 cabbages and also my onions grown from seeds.

My home grown cabbages harvested from my garden.

Photo #15 - Begonias from my garden.
Photo #16 - Purple & Pink Wishbone flowers.
The tiny pink flowers plant in the background is the Mexican Heather.
Photo #17 - Pink and Purple Wishbone flowers.
These easily self-propagate and grow like weeds in my garden.

The Mexican Heather also self-propagate from their seeds.
Photo #19
These Begonia also self-propagate and spread all over my garden.

But thanks be to God! For through what Christ has done,

he has triumphed over us so that now wherever we go

he uses us to tell others about the Lord and

to spread the Gospel like a sweet perfume.
