Growing of leaf cabbage
Leaf cabbage Reflex F1 was for me a discovery last year. I try every year add some new plant to your vegetable collection. Some people like at once and stay for a long time, and with some I can not agree.
I began my acquaintance with varieties of leaf cabbage with Japanese Little Mermaid. In the annotation to the seeds it was said: “The plants are unpretentious, relatively heat- and cold-resistant.
After cutting, young leaves grow, which makes it possible to receive products throughout the summer-autumn period. The variety is resistant to flowering.
The value of the variety: high yield, resistance to unfavorable environmental conditions, long period of economic viability.
Grown in open or protected ground from early spring to late autumn, sowing it in several terms. Recommended for vitamin salads. "
It all turned out, the leaves grew very quickly, after cutting for the salad, they grew and grew. Therefore, one or two bushes are sufficient for planting. Then there were salad Japanese cabbage Mitsuno Red and Mitsuno Green.
The value of Japanese cabbage is its incredible growth rate: in 30-40 days you can cut fresh herbs, in which there is a high content of biologically active substances. I recommend trying, I think, and you will like it.
After that, I tried to grow Pekinese cabbage Miss China F1 and other varieties that are sold in winter in supermarkets.
Advantages of the hybrid: early ripeness, short growing period, the ability to grow in spring and autumn, high quality of head.
I grew this cabbage in a greenhouse along the path. It all turned out, only it was more delicious than from the supermarket. But with Chinese cabbage pak-choi (petiolate varieties) and did not manage to make friends. As I did not care for her, she all went into color.
And last spring I planted a leaf cabbage Reflex.
Seedlings I grow in a greenhouse. To do this, I use homemade pots of plastic bottles, cutting a bottle on 10 cm from the side of the neck.
Then I put the bottles into the ground with the neck down (without the cork) in the greenhouse along the path. I fill the resulting pots with earth and plant the seeds. When the seedlings grow, I remove the pots from the ground and dip them into the water. Calmly I take out the seedlings and transplant them to a permanent place.
I got three sprouts of Reflex. After the transplant, the cabbage grew quickly and looked beautiful - a kind of curly beauty (see photo).
Everyone who came to us on the site, immediately paid attention to it and asked what kind of miracle I am growing.
In spring and summer we cut off the necessary number of leaves and used this cabbage in salads, and cooked cabbage soup with it (it tastes like spinach to taste).

Autumn has come, and in the end of September our beauty has grown up to 80 cm (which was also mentioned in the annotation). There were no pests on it.
Since there were still a lot of leaves on the cabbage, I decided to freeze it to use it in the winter for soups. Narwhal leaves, washed, cut them along the veins and divided into small leafy kochanchiki. She then poured hot water over them. When the leaves cooled down, put them into bags for freezing and put them in the freezer.
