I've got some mystery brassicas on the go which may be late brussel sprouts but they're not showing any interst in 'sprouting' or may be lat PSB. The exctiement of the mystery is almost too intense.

We had some in the shop before Christmas Shocked I suspect it was from a polytunnel. Ours is showing sprouts: should be ready in about 2 weeks.

No local stuff in the shops yet, but one stall had 'purple sprouting broccoli tops'.

We often eat the leaves and tops of our PSB: yummy. I guess that's what they were selling, Cab?

I guess so. Is there any advantage to lopping the tops off before it starts sprouting?
mochyn

Dont' know, but it's supposed to work on Brussels to make the sprouts bigger, so maybe it works with PSB too. Off to sacrifice a couple of plants to science...

Lots of PSB on the market this weekend. Ours seems to be a good three weeks off yet Sad Which gives us time to chomp through more of the kale Smile

Had some from the local farm shop, bit dissapointing I have to say. Which is a shame, as I was trying to convert the family to it. Just have to wait until we have our own next winter Sad

We have had a couple of feeds of ours, the first about two weeks ago. It seems to have come to a bit of a halt noe with the cold weather.
