Look what Rhiannon & and I planted this afternoon:
Brussels Sprouts! Rhiannon and I are both avid Sprouts of Brussels fans. And hopefully, if the weather cooperates, if the rains fall from the sky and if the planets are in alignment, we will be munching on our very own crop of miniature cabbages come the beginning of June.
These seeds were from my dear Susan (no, not the cat. that would just be....weird) and we planted an entire tray of them. So now we're just waiting for their little seedling heads to pop out of the trays. There were enough in the packet that I'm also going to plan on a fall planting. I've never grown Brussels sprouts so this is going to be a first here on the farm. With thirty-six potential plants, I wonder if we'll just be total gluttons and eat Brussels sprouts for breakfast, lunch and supper or if there will be enough to freeze.
We'll find out in a hundred days!
Thanks again, Susan! I've got your peach and ground cherry seeds in an envelope and another two seed requests just waiting to drop in the mailbox. And if my other seed-hungry blogging buddies haven't already done so, shoot me an email with what seeds you'd like. If you're quick I can get them out with this batch.
Spread the seed wealth :)
