Bed 2 Brussels Sprouts 8th July 2010

First picking of the Brussels Sprouts. Lower leaves stripped to make room for the new sprouts. Pamela said I wouldn’t be able to get a successful crop of sprouts here but I did. However, the weather played its part and we have had a much more traditional winter and June and July have been cold months. May was reasonably mild allowing the plants to grow to a good size because they were really sown a bit too late in the year. Will sow these in punnets straight after Christmas 2010.
