These are cabbages, but not my cabbages. I'd be happy if mine looked this good.


I planted (from seedling) two cabbages into a window box mid-April. They have been growing since then but their growth is very stunted. I realize now that the box is too shallow as the roots are beginning to show above the soil. Can I harvest them even though the leaves are small, or have I left it too late? Or is it possible to repot them into larger containers in August?
