Got into gardening with lock down like the whole world it seems. Small back yard, so everything I grow is in pots, having a go and involving the kids.

Brassica oleracea (Gemmifera Group)

Oh man. #aphids all over my #brussellsprouts even poor #kingbrussel's layers have been infiltrated. Do you think if i leave them in water they'll drown and I can eat the Brussels? Or do they just get tossed now? #gyo #canteatwhatigrow #aphidssuck

Some nearly ready for harvest I think. I also just planted some broccoli and red cabbage from the woollies seedlings thing that have been languishing in tiny pot. #brusselsprouts #gyo

Is this just a bunch of leaves on my broccoli or does the king sprout grow on top here, ruling over the peasant sprouts on the stem?? #brusselsprouts #gyo

I'm surprised they've got this big the pot is not big enough. Maybe I'll get 10 babies to harvest if I'm lucky. #gyo #brusselsprouts

Little tiny Brussels on the stem I think. And hasn't been completely devoured by green caterpillars yet, touch wood. #brusselsprouts #gyo
