As far as fall crops go, cabbage is heartier than most and actually thrives in cooler regions. It can grow to maturity in late fall or early spring. Cabbage should be planted in moist soil and watered regularly, but don’t let the soil get too saturated. The crop takes 2-3 months before it’s ready to be harvested and the result is full, beautiful heads that can be stored for a few months at a time.
