19 pounds. The circumference of
etc., thelhead proper of the cabbage was
at will 23 inches, and from edge to edge
neral) across the cabbage was 37 inches.
SThis cabbage was not totally solid,
__ and was the only one that was so
large out of the bunch that Mr.
Ledet raised. ,
There are many articles that are
raised all over this parish that are
above the average, and there are
some that are never brought to the
notice of the public.
