Cabbage is among many vegetables that can be stored for a period of time. As long as it's kept in the right conditions (cabbage is fine in the fridge), you can hang on to it for months. The outer leaves may get a bit ugly looking, so just pull those off and toss them in your compost pile.
Among other amazing storage veggies are winter squash (my fave), root vegetables such as potatoes, onions, carrots, garlic, etc. We keep these in a colder, unfinished room in our basement. Traditionally they were stored in a root cellar.
No need to can or freeze any of these.
Yep, you can eat fresh food from the garden in winter!
