Harvest Monday: November 24, 2014 - Update on Brussels Sprouts
Note to Self: When friends say that hanging brussels sprouts upside down in your basement will keep them growing after they have been harvested ... don't believe them. They just shrivel up and look even smaller than they were to begin with.
Oh - that's too bad! I guess that's just how it goes when you experiment - you win some, you lose some. But we keep on trying 'cause the wins are so good!ReplyDelete
It's fun either way, isn't it? Always happy to experiment ...Delete
Oh dear. That's not good. But there is always next year.ReplyDelete
Yes indeed, if I have some seeds left, I'll try again next year. If I don't, I think I'll give up on the brussels sprouts - too short of a season here, I think.Delete
Oops! Sorry to chuckle. It's disappointing when you've spent so long growing something.ReplyDelete
I have a vague memory of someone saying put them in a bucket of water but that might be if you want to harvest them from a plot and then not use straight away (or maybe my brain just made it up out of nowhere )
