I tend to but veg when on offer in the supermarkets as they keep very well in the fridge, a few weeks ago I got a red cabbage which I put in a cupboard not the fridge and forgot about it. About a week ago ( just checked the date on the photo and it was 2nd april) came across it at the back of the cupboard and was surprise to see new growth, I removed the cling film wrapper and I am now nurturing it!! not sure how long before the actual cabbage will "go off" but until it does it is quite nice to watch the new growth.
Wondering what will happen next, shame isn`t it that things like this amuse me, think I need to `get a life`
Maybe I will keep a carrot, onion and a few other bits and pieces and start a collection of sprouting veg!!
