We have had such a mild Winter that some of the Fall friendly plants didn't die. My brussel sprouts are one such specimen. They didn't do anything all Summer long--barely even grew. But I chose the tallest of the plants I had and stacked corn stalks around it. Then covered it during the few cold spells we had.When I checked over the weekend, this is what I saw. Last night, for dinner, I had roasted brussel sprouts. Yum!
