Random England fact:
Dorset was the first county in England to cultivate cabbages, when it was brought across from Holland in 1539 by Sir Anthony Ashley (1551 - 1628). His beautiful ornate tomb can be seen in the church at the village of Wimborne St Giles, Dorset. The Polyhedron at the feet of the effigies of Sir Anthony and his wife, is believed by many to represent a cabbage.
