Some have mistaken this for purple cabbage, but it is in fact an heirloom brussel sprout plant I grew in a previous garden, although not too successfully if you count harvest as success (but I’m pretty happy with the photos).
I’m not sure why the brussel sprouts didn’t form as expected. The leaves are also edible, but they’re a little tougher than something like spinach; I’ve used them in a soup once before (stay tuned).
They were growing in a pot in the shade over the Summer as I’d planted them too late the season before. I moved them back into the garden when the weather cooled down.
If you have experience or tips growing brussel sprouts, I’d love to hear from you.
