Curbside Coleslaw: Preparing To Plant?

We came across a slew of cabbage plants last night. They were sitting on a stoop in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, looking for a place to put down roots.

The sign says:

Free Cabbage Plants.
Please Take.
(Whole Lotta Coleslaw)

A woman walking ahead of us said, “Yuck . . . ” after she saw the sign. Guess she doesn’t like coleslaw? We just wish we had enough any outdoor space to start a little cabbage patch.

Seems like coleslaw is the summer version of boiled brussels sprouts, a warm weather side dish that people love to hate. Homemade coleslaw is a favorite around here, especially with smoky BBQ. They don’t know what they’re missing.

Making coleslaw at home is also a great excuse to buy a food processor, if you don’t own one already. That pre-washed, pre-shredded coleslaw mix isn’t the same.

Seeing these little plants has us hoping some of you preparing to plant vegetable gardens. How does your garden grow?
