How does one prevent Brussels Sprouts from flowering/going to seed? Mine did nothing last year, but it survived the winter and doubled in size over the last month and a half, I figured it was picking up where it left off, but it's just trying to kill itself. It's about 20 inches tall with no sprouts.

I dont know about the sprouts.....but I know that the leaves are tender and delicous when cooked like very young collards.

Well the temps are going to be in the low to mid 70s today, looks like all threats of frost are gone, so, after it warms up a little, I am going to put on my old duds and get to planning the rest of the garden. Let's hope everything does better than last year. Mom nature gave up too much rain; hope she isn't stingy this year.

Today I plan to get over to the garden and plant a Japanese Green (brassica japonica).....; since my family is half japanese...I like to order and grow Asian plants in my little garden. I get the seeds on line. http://www.evergreenseeds.com/japgreenmis.html

My tomatoes are doing well.....this is their time here in my zone......so hope they grow and ripen up over the next three or four weeks.....then it will be almost time to pull them out and start another crop. I have some Japanese cucumbers (kuri) to try; I will need to provide them with stakes to get them off the ground so they can grow straight and have a chance to avoid any fungal infection.

I have a new seed...."winged beans" to try this year. The beans are the principal crop.....but "Mother Earth" says all parts of the plant are edible...leaves, stems, beans and even the roots. I will probably stick with the beans. http://www.evergreenseeds.com/wingedbean.html

on second thought...............I have been reading more about them and they sound as if it is their mission to take over the world......very long and heavy vines requiring study supports.....and the beans need to be harvested almost daily and cooked and eaten the same day......they dont hold well in the fridge....turning black or funky green. I dont think they play nice in a community garden.

We already had an incident over "everglade tomatoes" with a similar growth pattern.....(but delicious and sweet little tomatoes) The person who planted the everglade tomatoes was asked to "remove" them....unsuitable for raised beds in a community garden.
