They say Brussels Sprouts have a long growing season…And they’re not joking!
Although this double headed freak has survived some traumas. I believe he has been moved around many times – usually because I don’t realise how big he was going to get, and planted too many too close together. The other thing that happens is that I like reorganise my veggies a few times a year and most of them are pretty forgiving. I dig my hand shovel and cut a circle of dirt around the plants, pry them up, and transplant the whole block to the new location.
I’m pretty sure I started this guy from seed almost a year ago the same time as these…..
These were harvested back in June 2010. They already had been growing for about 6 months. Plenty of time and hogging up my valuable land space! I read that you can pinch the top of the heads to make the sprouts mature sooner. So thats what I did to all my plants and it really worked which was pretty awesome.
So after pulling out the two biggest stalks of sprouts, I left one to mature a little more.
