A bowl of Brussels sprouts

Finally my first harvest of Brussels sprouts, after planting them last spring! They grow so slowly. I think they didn’t even form sprouts until late in the summer. And of the four plants, only one has formed sprouts worth snipping, just barely the size of my thumb, and just barely starting to open.

On the happy side, it’s  a cole crop and hardy in cold weather. A little snow come and gone, and the Brussels shake it off. And then I remember that maybe I might want to eat a few, so snip, snip, snip — a bowl of cole!
