I opened the garden for an hour, and welcomed one mother with daughter, and another parent and child too. She might be interested next year as she can’t garden at her place (too many trees), but she declared herself a novice. I told her we are all learners, and we have some very good teachers!
I sat on a pail and tried to draw the Brussels sprouts. Such plants! The leaf veins really resemble rivers on maps, with smaller branches and brooks flowing in. I tried to count all the sprouts on one plant. There must be around 60, counting all the very little ones and too-big ones. Perhaps 40 to divide now, probably more as time ripens.
