From the Brussels sprouts nursery

Brussels sprouts, Johns Island, SC
I have no recollection of eating a Brussels sprout as a child but now after roasting them in a hot oven, I love them. Truthfully, I don't think I had ever seen them growing on a stalk until today. 
I have a good meal ahead of me.

I had no idea they grew like that.

Everything grows great on Johns Island.The soil there is amazing!

We have bought BS's on the stalk at Trader Joe's.They last quite a while.

A story on Morning Edition recently said that BS's are the fastest growing veggie in popularity today.The said the reason was a new variety was developed about ten years ago that is WAY less bitter than those nasty things we grew up with!

Also because we know how to cook them now. Roasted BS are soooo delicious!
