A Kay Nielson illustration for ??what story.*  Posted because I now have cabbages sprouting.  They are hardy plants that will tolerate the intermittent chills of a Wisconsin spring.  I sprinkled about a hundred seeds in a flat of 18 containers, and must have over 80 seedlings already; will need to thin out for just the strongest ones probably next week.  Planted not for the family, but to attract and raise Cabbage Whites (butterflies).

A hat tip to Nolandda, who tracked down the image as an illustration for Felicia and the Pot of Pinks from Andrew Lang's The Blue Fairy Book:
