ORANGE — Mrs. Leisa Miller’s third grade class at St. Mary Catholic School planted cabbages in October and harvested them January 7th. The students weeded around the plants, watered, and fertilized and cared for them regularly.

The weights of the individual cabbages varied from 2 pounds to 7 pounds. Montana DiLeo’s cabbage weighed in as the largest. A picture of Montana’s cabbage along with its measurements were sent in to a state-wide contest.
