I have what was 4 healthy cabbages. Gradually the outer leaves began to get brown on 1 plant. It was stunted. Yes, I have made sure that there was plenty of water.

Today I found that plant totally dead and mushy. I pulled it and will destroy it.

I have seen no evidence of worms, etc. Any ideas what could have caused this?

I don't really know much about it being new, but I believe I read that a cabbage should get less water as it heads up. I avoid watering mine except for about every 3rd or 4th time right now. Don't know if that's what happened to yours or not. We'll let the wise ones answer.

The best way to save your cabbage is to transplant the cabbage into a nursing bed where you can try to resuscitate it back to life. The cabbage should be placed in humus rich moist loam soil in the nursing bed. The plant should then be watered twice a day for two weeks as you monitor its progress.

I took them out and destroyed the plant. I was able to rescue a grapefruit sized head on the healthiest of the bunch. It was totally gross (the other ones).

I had a chance to assess later and realized that the one that was the least damaged was the one where the square was always in need of water. Maybe that's why is grew better than the other 3. I would see that and water all 4 of them. Maybe I should have been more careful to check the soil every time. Another lesson learned.

Wow that's cool that you can transplant a growing cabbage. Very Happy I never knew that! I have been successful at growing them some times but didn't plant them this year. I learned that you can harvest the outside leaves regularly so you don't have to try to use a whole cabbage in a short amount of time. Just some tidbits if you're interested.

I think I know what the problem was. Looked up lots of information and this is the closest to the cabbage issue that I had.

It started when we were having the most intense heat and humidity.

Great timing. I walked out this morning to find the same thing on my brussel sprouts. We planted them probably in February and are only now getting marble sized sprouts. Now I've got to pull out all four.

According to what I have read so far, it can spread. I have not put the plants in my compost pile. Also, I think I'm going to leave those squares empty and make sure I don't plant any coles including radishes for at least 3 years. This whole Cruciferous thing is quite interesting. Some of our weeds that could be beneficial as cover crops are part of the family. Radishes and mustard are but 2 that I would have not thought to be part of the family.

toledobend, sorry to hear that your brussel sprouts were struck with this.
