Hi Derbyduck   Hope the ankle's recovering

The usual reason for sprouts blowing is that the plants aren't well trodden into the ground when planted and then staked - if they blow and rock in the wind that causes the sprouts to blow.

Blown sprouts are brilliant washed, quartered and stir fried with little bits of fried bacon, slivers of almonds and some lemon zest

Disappearing lawn!

Crane flies in the lawn is a bit of a clue, as well as the time of year that your grass is disappearing.

I'd try using nematodes
