Purple Brussels Sprouts - A Transformative Tale

Last fall I planted this Purple Brussels Sprout with high hopes for piles and piles of Purple Brussels Sprouts.  The plant barely grew and I got no sprouts.  Over the course of winter, spring, and summer the plant grew considerably then, in August, it tipped over!  What little hope I had left sort of crumbled at that point - but then something amazing happened.  Along the entire length of the fallen stem new Brussels Sprouts stems shot up healthy and robust!  Now I have a miniature forest of Brussels Sprouts and (fingers crossed) I will see and eat my piles and piles of Purple Brussels Sprouts this winter.  Yes!
