I know it is a bit late for planting out cabbages (although the seed pack says "Sow March to July" and I did sow mine in July), but I am hoping they will survive to maturity, or at least grow to a useable size. I may have to cover them with fleece a bit later on.
Here are the seedlings just after I pricked them out into individual pots (on August 14th).

Here are some of the same seedlings just after planting out (on August 22nd)

This is what happened to one of the newly-planted seedlings a few days later (August 27th). During the spell of very wet weather we had, the slugs had a Field Day and one of the cabbage seedlings became a victim. You can see that the stem is eaten-through at ground level (this was under the collar), and the leaves are ragged and full of holes
