Brussel sprouts going to seed
This is my second year of trying to grow Brussel sprouts. Last year they were so invested with afids they wound up in the compost pile, darn it. This year, no afids YET (its probably not hot enough yet), but my Brussels sprouts have blooms and seeds on the top. I didn't see that last year. And the sprouts seem rather "loose" not tightly packed like last year. Are they supposed to go to seed? Will they still grow sprouts or should I junk them and wait for the ones I grew from seed (these are from nursery starts). what could have been wrong? Is it due to the hot days we've had this spring. Darn global warming.
