With all the tomatoes gone, the grapes shed of all their leaves, and only some fall veggies left, the Brussels Sprouts are the King of the Garden! I can’t quite decide if they are pretty or ugly. We’ve been looking at them all year.
Yeah, I still can’t decide. I do like the contrast with the carrot tops! I keep checking on them, wanting to see good growth on the sprouts. Unfortunately, I’m not sure how good the yield will be. We’ve had so many caterpillars munching on them that many of the sprouts look rather shredded. That is definitely a major challenge of growing brussels sprouts here. The season is so long and so filled with caterpillars that it can be a challenge to get a good crop. We’ll just have to wait and see what the final result is. I’m thinking we’re not planting Brussels Sprouts next year!
