Chris, I use New Jersey Wakefield for slaws, cabbage rolls and sauerkraut. I usually grow it and seldom find it in grocery stores. 

"Heirloom. This American cabbage is a favorite for early harvest, forming a conical, pointed, dark green head with a smooth, sweet flavor. The head is slow to split and slow to bolt. Holds in the garden for 2 to 3 weeks after maturity. Rich in vitamins and minerals. Some gardeners consider this the best tasting of all cabbages."

Speaking of cabbage, last night I fried some up with onion, lemon juice, honey, mustard, salt and pepper, and placed it in a baked tortilla with sour cream and a little Panka. Incredibly good!

Greyhound or Eersteling cabbage.

Kalibos cabbage.

My cabbages get a lot of slugs and cabbage worms.  Maybe I should try to grow one of these, in 2017, anyway.

Chris, I haven't seen or grown it, but the place where I get heritage seeds, supplies some that look similar.

Baker Creek Cabbages

Most of the grocery store vegetables here are very limited.  The diversity is in factory made processed foods.  That catalog is very non-mainstream.  I've grown some of their squashes, pumpkins, radishes, and turnips, all are great.

Chris, I've not seen or heard of that kind of cabbage.

My American neighbour told me that this cabbage is unknown in the USA, but perhaps that isn't true. We call it spitskool - pointed cabbage. How do you call it?

I think my dad used aluminum sheets to wrap the trunk.

Yes, Daniel, those squirrels are smart thieves.  Very difficult to defeat.

From my dad's war with them, it seems the only way to keep some nuts for yourself is to have your tree a long ways from anything they can jump from (and they can jump a long ways).  Then prune off all the lower branches they can jump to from the ground.  Then wrap the trunk with something slippery that they can't get a purchase on.

Randy, I've sort of uncoupled meal foods from meal time.  If I want eggs and hash browns for supper, that's the meal.  If I want a gardenburger for breakfast, that's what I do. 

Spud, I planted hazel nut trees a few years back, and so far squirrels get every nut.  There are zero for me!  Maybe I should try walnuts, but I think about those rodents and, well, why bother?

Every now and then, I have breakfast for dinner. Last night, I had waffles and bacon. I added persimmon pulp and pecans to my waffle mix. Yummy.
