Nice but look tiny to me Yorkshire. I hope they will be ready by Christmas to be served with the Turkey. We do them although some of the family don't like them.

They should be ready for Christmas Costas, but not with Turkey, we don't eat it, none of our kids eat them, sprouts I mean

I love sprouts but have never tried purple ones!!

12 Dec, 2011

 

will let you know what they are like once we have tried them

12 Dec, 2011

 

I'd be interested to know, probably just like the green ones?

Pretty enough to grow in the flowerbeds, Val. We have grown Bosworth sprouts this year, and they are scrumptious! Trying hard not to scoff them all before Christmas day. Ever tried them shredded and in stirfries? Maybe the kids would like them like that. They are wonderful. I can't say I've ever tried eating the tops, but I shall be giving them a go - can't let lovely crisp green brassica leaves of any sort go to waste.

I agree there G...the tops are just as flavoursome....nothing to waste except the stalk...:))

If I had to choose a favourite photo subject between flowers or veg the veg section would just slightly edge ahead, just slightly mind. Great shot of a favourite veg & nice colour.

thanks for your comments, these are actually a lot darker now the frost has been on them

13 Dec, 2011

 

That's how the flavour develops Yorks, a Brussel is not the same without a good frost, same as Parsnips....yummy..

14 Dec, 2011

 

They are the only things left growing in our vegetable garden now, Sue, those and a few bits of broccoli and a couple of leeks waiting for Christmas day. Just waiting for some decent frost......

14 Dec, 2011

 

Broad beans, sprouts and leeks here in the garden, Oh and the last cabbage

14 Dec, 2011

 

and a few last Carrots too....:)))

15 Dec, 2011

 

well done,

15 Dec, 2011

 

Then we start all over again Yorks....lol...
