Purple Sprouting Broccoli
First time trying this Veggie, what an amazing plant, it has survived the winter without cover, granted it has been mild , regardless, I’m confident it would survive well with a bit of snow, they did make it through all of the frost. amazing, as is the flavour, all of the plant is edible . The leaves taste similar to kale but more tender and sweet! Six plants went in as starters, I was too late for seed, and all are growing strong! Note to self ; plant more for next year!
Still going strong! We harvested the main crowns in mid Nov and they are still producing side shoots! Could have used more of these also, there is plenty of empty space…
Red Brussel Sprouts
Brussel Sprouts-In a shade bed
Also a first time for me trying Brussel Sprouts, I put in 2 varieties , both very disappointing , my fault for planting too late and in an area with too much shade! The Red Brussels do look healthy , there may be a chance that they’ll produce something by spring…I’m not going to count on it. This summer seeds will be started early!!!
Parsley-Almost time for a new patch!
Sage – Needs replanting
So great to see new growth coming up !
