Brussels sprouts taste best after a good, hard frost. Most 485 Elm Gardeners wait until November to take their stalks. I’ve harvested them from under the snow as late as February. This year, the sprouts are forming slowly. Our brassica endured early assaults from flea beetles this season. We wonder if that’s why they’re not forming as well as in past years.
