My cabbage seem to have stalled and not growing much at all... I wonder what caused that maybe the excessive heat early on after planting... I don't know what but it sucks I love cabbage.

Charleston Greys hard to beat. I grow those every year along with Crimson Sweets and one other variety. This year the other variety is the old tried and true Jubilees.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

Sky, I don't know what kind of yellow meated watermelons jl is growing but if you want to grow some, I suggest Desert King. They get pretty big, 30-40 lbs. Good and sweet too.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?
