Is there cabbage that you can leave in the ground and just pull the leaves off as you need them? The same applies to lettuce,

In principle you can take the leaves off cabbage but the plant will continue on to make a heart and go to seed. If you cut away the heart, but leave the cut stem in place, it will usually sprout some new small heads that can be used later.

Looseleaf lettuces such as ‘Salad Bowl’ can be picked continuously for a time but will eventually deteriorate later in the season.
