I celebrated the New Year by harvesting the remainder of the Brussels sprout crop. It was a sunny day in the mid 40’s with a 2″ crust of snow on the ground. The chickens were not happy about the snow and let me hear about it on my way out to the garden.
My five “Diablo” Brussels sprouts plants still had a nice supply of sprouts despite repeated pickings since mid-November. Total haul was just over four pounds; quite satisfying for this time of year.
This marks the official close of the 2015 gardening year. The next two months will be devoted to evaluating the previous year and planning the new year. I’m already halfway through perusing the 2016 seed catalogs.
Here’s wishing you a wonderful new year of gardening.
All the best,
