A new item this week is the stalk of Brussels Sprouts. The cool wet weather that we’ve had along the way delayed its maturity until this week. While it may not be on some people ‘to die for list’, I know some of you have waited all year for them. The subsequent plantings look good, so even if you end up eating this one yourself on your way back home and there isn’t anything left to share with your ‘best buddies’ back there, rest assured. I specifically planted more so that we could keep these types of domestic disputes to a minimum. I’m referring to those disputes involving the availability of Brussels Sprouts in the home, heaven knows there so much going on in the world as it is.

Be well,

Fred & Karen

PS. The Jalapeno Peppers are small medium-warm type. I tried one and it was very mild, but that’s not to say they are all like that. If we didn’t give you indigestion last week, here’s another opportunity to test the effectiveness of your antacid tablets in your medicine cabinet.
