5 weeks of growth

my first attempt at growing red cabbage in my current working unit.  I only have one tube functional at the this time, as I am working on a redesign of my upper tube to incorporate my work on the temp probes and media probes for the next step in my Smart Tube automation.

The leaves on my plants are huge!!

White square is 1" X 1"

Here is my growth at 9 week mark heads are starting to form.  I am weeks away from “RED CABBAGE” coleslaw.
