OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly Cabbage grows well over almost all areas of Alaska. Some, like the ones exceeding 90 pounds at the Alaska State Fair, achieve proportions that seem inconceivable even when you are staring right at the monsters. Most people grow this conventional green cabbage variety (but somewhat smaller) as I have also done for years. This year I included another variety, savoy cabbage, in my garden and wish I had thought of it sooner.

Two savoy cabbages thrive on the shady side of Petersen's greenhouse in Thorne Bay despite this summer's unusually warm conditions. Photo taken at the end of August.
