Couldn't resist pinching a few #sprouts off the bottom of the stalks when I was taking the yellow leaves off - never too early in the season to eat sprouts 💚💚💚

I've never been able to eat them, turn my stomach - except when I was expecting Ethan, I'd eat them raw, by the tonne!

@beckers1974 really? That's funny! I could only eat fish finger sandwiches and drink milk for 9 months! All four children have really strong teeth after all that calcium! 😂😂 so what effect has you eating sprouts had on Ethan 😂😂😂 💨
