CABBAGES AND RELATED CROPS

brassica growing guideDIG FOR VICTORY LEAFLET No. 5

As this leaflet says at the start:

THE cabbage family can provide food from the garden in all seasons of the year—highly nutritious food, particularly rich in protective vitamins.

The cabbage family along with the peas and beans have been staple crops in these lands since pre-history.

This leaflet covered four pages and I have stayed with basically the same format, splitting the content on subject lines rather than the limitations of paper. My comments are in green.
