When I opened it up, these little buddies first greeted me. A gigantic head of napa cabbage, and some little baggies of mixed field greens.
Here’s the whole spread. One gigantic head of napa cabbage. My sister estimates it was around 10 lbs, and really… the sucker is massive. It’s more than twice the size of my head, which is impressively large in its own right. 3 Bags of mixed salad greens. A dainty bunch of red and white radishes that got Albany John all hot and bothered (the boy loves his radishes). And two zucchinis. One even had the flower still on it.
I was kind of worried Albany John wouldn’t be pleased with the napa cabbage. You see, lately I’ve become something of a napa cabbage hoarder… I’d see a good price and buy two or three heads, so we still have 1.5 large heads of the stuff in our fridge. But he wasn’t upset. You know why? I shoved the head of cabbage under his nose and had him take a good whiff. It smells so sweet! I also suspect this is a different varietal than that kinds in the Asian grocery stores in the area, as there was more green to it and less white stem, yet the green leaves themselves are quite thick and substantial.
