Feeding a capital city

in food •  9 months ago

A sea of cabbages, cabbages cabbages as far as the eye can see.

This commercial farmer produces 4 million cabbages per year to supply to hawkers and retailers in the city of Luanda.

They have cabbages growing all year round and you can find from freshly planted seedlings to ready to harvest at any time.

These are just forming heads and are a few weeks from maturity and harvesting.

In the sub-tropics it takes lots of pesticides to obliterate the hordes of pests that would attack these vegetables otherwise. As can be seen there are no holes in these leaves but without these pesticides the cabbage moth caterpillars would turn them into a patchwork quilt.

Now this is really something unique to watch and you said right about the cabbage view, it's literally reflecting as an world of cabbage and i am just imagining how many times for an day people are cooking cabbage. The most important aspect is, they are growing the natural farming and this is really important, and in my opinion there would be never an lack of supply of cabbage. Thanks for sharing and wishing you an great day. Stay blessed. 🙂
