    Got a question to you experienced garden/chicken keepers. I just trimmed 9 large collard plants and 9 heads of cabbage. Way too much to give the girls at once. No room in the fridge. Do you think they would last for a while in an unheated shed? temps are down in the twenties at nigt here.

    I don't see why not. I've seen cabbage sit out at the little roadside veggie stands for upwards of a few weeks. Pull off a few bad leaves, and presto! You've got fresh cabbage.

    If they don't last, well, that's what the compost heap is for anyway.[​IMG]

    As long as the temp. don't get above 40 and don't get below 35 you should be fine and they should last for awhile ...
