Brussels sprouts from good to great

Staking Brussels sprouts stalks that fell over (but didn’t break) during high winds. The Brussels sprouts rows are now tidy and beautiful.

A light frost that would kill a tomato plant is only the beginning for Brussels sprouts. Brussels sprouts sweeten to deliciousness after a few hard frosts.

We’ll be harvesting Brussels sprouts here at the Garden at 485 Elm for as long as there are still buds on the stalks.
