Gretta Schulberg is growing places -- and so is the cabbage she grew this summer.

As a part of the national program, "Bonnie's 3rd Grade Cabbage Program," Gretta, Detroit Lakes, started the cabbage by seed at the end of 3rd grade in Mrs. Jackson's class. She used compost and manure to grow her cabbage and lots of water. It grew so big it started to split so she had to harvest it.


Gretta's cabbage weighed in at 18 pounds.
