Lucky you! They are looking fine! Mine are duds this year. Last year I had good success with sprinkling a handful of dried blood around the base every 2 weeks making plumper sprouts. Very Happy

Very nice Josh. Those we are growing in the community garden seem a bit loose.

I planted some in the spring that did NOTHING. Should I leave them through the fall and see what happens?

Josh I love your posts!!! It always makes me smile to see the wonderful things you can grow and it gives me renewed excitement at what I can grow every time!

They are called "Bubbles" Brussels Sprouts. Maturity-85-90 days.

I planted mine in the spring too, and just this past 2 weeks they started making sprouts. Maybe if you give yours some more time they will start making sprouts too.

Last year I planted some in the spring, and they never did make anything, and they made it through the winter and then in the spring I thought they were making sprouts, but it was blooms, so they must have been going to make seeds, and I pulled them up and planted these.

MM, I have been discouraged about my BS too. So today I went out and took off practically all of the large foliage and tomorrow I am going to nip off the growing tip of the plant. I will follow the advice I found on the internet last year for boosting my BS.(that sounds funny). Anyway, here is a thread from last year about Brussels Sprouts and you can find that there are a few good links about how to grow them. BS is for Brussels Sprouts. Very Happy

An update on the brussels sprouts, they are doing really good still growing and making brussels sprouts. They have a different taste to them...not to bad...but they smell awful when they are cooking!

Brussels Sprouts, in my opinion, are best prepared by roasting or braising with a bit of shallot or onion, garlic, olive oil and sea salt. Or bacon What a Face
