Fourth Grader Grows Huge Cabbage From Seedling

Each spring, Burpee's Seeds swings by Shaker Road Elementary School and drops off dozens of cabbage plants. They are wee seedlings when they get here and the third grade students take them home. And each year, at least one of those third graders gets the cabbage to grow very well.

Gianna Savoca is a fourth grader this year but you can see in the pictures that she truly has a green thumb. That cabbage plant is huge! Gianna has not decided how she is going to use the cabbage - cole slaw or sauerkraut or boiled with corned beef - but there is no denying her horticultural prowess. Well done, Gianna!
