First attempt ever at growing #Jersey-cabbage, #walkingStick in 14 months I’d say 😜😂 here’s wiki to explain. The '#Jersey #cabbage' develops a long stalk, commonly reaching 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3.0 m) in height, and can grow as tall as 18 to 20 feet (5.5 to 6.1 m)Historically the stalks were made into walking sticks, of which 30,000 a year were being sold by the early 20th century, many for export. They were also used for fencing and as rafters. Now there’s one couple growing them.

Still great that you shared it. Never would have thought that a cabbage stalk could be used in such ways.

The Jersey cabbage (Brassica oleracea longata) is a variety of cabbage native to the Channel Islands that grows to a great height and was formerly commonly used there as livestock fodder and for making walking sticks. It is also known as Jersey kale or cow cabbage,and by a variety of local names including giant cabbage,long jacks, tree cabbage and the French chour and chou à vacque. Also a quick growing fence in my case hopefully to keep the dog in..... 😬😊🤫😂 sown 8th feb 2019
