Harold Cummings, of Appling, sits beside one of his extraordinarily large cabbage plants. Cummings planted several of the Bonnie Plant Farm's O.S. Cross cabbage plants in March, after he bought them in containers the size of yogurt cups. Each head, many of which have already been harvested and eaten, measures roughly 1 feet across and just as high. The O.S. Cross cabbage plants have grown much larger than the cabbage plants Cummings has planted in his 1-acre vegetable garden, which also includes lots of corn, squash, peas and melons. "You've got to have a big family to cook up one of these," Cummings said of the cabbage plant that won't fit into one cooking pot. "I don't even eat cabbage. I just like to grow it."
