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!
