The giant sprouts


By hank


Not quite sure exactly what a blog is, but the very last word on the sprouts is – they’re going on the compost heap !
They now have flower heads all the way up (4ft9ins), the top flowers are turning yellow and all,my other plants are in deepmshade.
No more sprouts for me !

I think the compost heap is the best place for sprouts. I can't stand them.
I'm glad your other plants will have some light now.

Me too,Hywel..Lol. Your other plants will have a fighting chance now...and probably they didn't like them either :o)

Hank, 9 years too late all you did wrong was not picking them at Christmas. They had just gone past it. I can't understand why so many people don't like sprouts. why don't you have another go?

Taste is hereditory so your dislike of them is down to your genetic makeup.

I remember when I was in school the biology teacher did an experiment on us with a liquid called Phenol phthalene (or something similar)
To some people it has no taste and for others it tastes bad.
I could not taste it at all but some other pupils had to run out of the room because they thought they were going to be sick.
