Gardening tips


Well-Known Forumite
I have grown sprouts this year. They look pretty good (other than the the stalk not being straight). Some of the bottom leaves are turning yellow.

Do I need to harvest now or can I take off the yellowing leaves and leave them?

Can I pick a few sprouts off at a time or do I need to harvest the lot?

Does anyone cook with the sprout tops? I was just going to give them to the rabbits but would like to use them if they are suitable
Just pick a few sprouts off at a time.
And don't overcook them !

The lawns have had a 'last good cut' and the debris has been piled up on top of the rhubarb.

I did this last year and it seemed to be a successful tactic - it rotted down to nothingness over the winter/spring and the rhubarb seemed to approach of this approach.
