I planted four plants in my garden this spring, and they’ve grown to mammoth proportions, taking over more room than I thought they would. But so far, the plants haven’t produced one sprout. They just recently — in the past week or two — began to develop teeny, tiny sprouts in the crooks of the branches.
Then, this morning in the paper, I read this article.
I also got an email from my mother-in-law yesterday, telling me that Brussels sprouts can actually get sweeter after there’s a frost.
So I’m going to cover my sprouts tonight, and leave them covered until Thursday, and hope for those sweet sprouts as promised.
Any seasoned gardeners out there have some advice to pass along?
