Kaitlynne (randomlykait) | 6 comments Okay, well my mom said that she read this book in grade school, and it was about a family who had a bunch of kids and every time there was a full moon more kids would appear. She said she was pretty sure that it had something to do with a magical garden or cabbage patch. And there was also an annoying busybody neighbor who waw always causing trouble.

Sarah (sarai0989) | 89 comments Might be The Cabbage Patch Fib by Paul Jennings?

Philip (philiphabecker) | 24 comments I'm pretty sure this isn't it, but every time I come back in here I'm reminded of Rapunzel.

Her parents lived next to a witch with a garden. When Rapunzel's mom was pregnant with her, her dad snuck into the garden and stole some cabbage.

I'm not sure if the prince was a busybody or not, but if the busybody in your story was blinded by thorns and then healed by Rapunzel's tears, well... we might be talking about the same story.

Kirkus review
Mrs. Purdy and her eighteen children have unusual adventures especially when Mrs. Purdy is nominated "Mother of the Year" and then declared a fraud.

The OP has settings at private, so no way to send a PM about this message. But he/she hasn't responded to other queries, so I'm going with "Abandoned by Poster" for it.
