Brussel sprouts

I have not had any success growing brussel sprouts. Yet. This year I am hoping to harvest a few.

So, this is what they look like at the moment. Loose sprouts on the stems. Will they 'hearten' up? I sure hope so. And how long does that take? When, oh when, can we harvest a delicious, home-grown brussel sprout?
Have you been successful with brussel sprouts? What's your trick? Advice?

Yuck! My advice is, 'Don't bother'!

Mmmm...waiting for your success. We were not sure whether it will fare well here at the plain or not. Good Luck.

Hazel, I bet you that you'd love caramelized brussel sprouts. Fry them in some butter/oil, with some garlic, until golden brown. (Add some crispy bacon, if you like that.) They are incredibly flavoursome that way. I have converted brusselsprout haters with that dish!

M-K Girl - I hope yours do well! Good luck! :)
