My sprouts are ready to harvest, but I don`t want to waste them if at all possible. I have about a dozen plants all with sprouts on. I have just cut one plant and brought it in the house about ten minutes ago-the first one.(see photo)
The thing is, I Iive alone and the sprouts on this one plant will suffice for 2 meals. There were approx 40 edible size ones, and about 6 or 8 around marble size or smaller that I left on the plant-too small to peel.So, one plant per week (until I am sick if eating sprouts-or not as the case may be).
The outer leaves of the sprouts are already going a bit yellow/brown so not sure how much longer I can leave them in the ground. Will they last longer in the ground with all the frost (snow?) that will be heading our way, or best to get them in now and eat sprouts like they are going out of fashion?
