Sprout out

Ripped out the brussels sprout plants today, they were starting to flower and the sprouts were pretty small and not growing much. The net tells me to plant them in summer and harvest in autumn/winter, just the opposite to what I did. Poo!
Got a meager handful of sprouts, they look quite gourmet-ish as they are tiny and will make a one meal side dish.
Their space can be used for better things in a month or so. For tomatoes and capsicums etc they say to wait till after Labour Day (Monday 26 October this year). Seems a long way away.
Started to dole out some of the compost to deserving plants.
