Vegetable and Fruit Growing on an Allotment in Edinburgh
Merry Christmas to you too Mal. Those brussels look great. What variety do you grow?? Mine always seems to open up..any tips?
Thanks Tany. Early Half Tall is pretty much the only variety I have grown. Being 1/2 tall they don't need to be staked and their roots stay pretty solidly fixed to the ground. Loose roots is said to be a major factor in sprouts "blowing". Having said that I have to admit that Brussels are not my favourite brassica - so they seem to grow successfully without even trying!
I love brussels...probably why I don't get any decent ones....do you think I can con them into thinking I don't like them for 2013?? lol
Happy Christmas! We are having a vegetarian indian feast with Bombay doses, daal and spinach paneer.... Oh and Brussels sprouts.....
Haven't made dosas for years Ray. Perhaps I will again soon. Nice that you still have a place for brussels. Spiced or plain boiled?
Hope you had a good Christmas Mal - our Christmas vegetables are still in the buckets
Sue, Hope all is back on an even keel after what must have been a horrendous Christmas! Please keep us posted.
So far we are taking one day at a time and so far so good. Appointment at ENT clinic on Monday so we will see whether we can cook again!
