Knowing when to harvest your crops is an important part of being a farmer. You may not think of yourself as a farmer, but if you use any part of your land, even if it is just a little planter on your apartment balcony to grow crops that you or your family are going to eat, you are a modern farmer.
Learning how to grow Brussel sprouts is a process I never thought I would be interested in. Do you remember turning your nose up at Grandma’s Brussel sprouts as a kid? We just weren’t up for anything ‘green’ in those days. These vegetables that resemble little cabbages we now realize are super healthy for us with high levels of many nutrients.
Broccoli is one of those super foods, an all-time favorite, crisp, nutritious vegetable that makes you want to always have it available. But you don’t want to keep having to go to the market to buy it. You want it fresh out of the garden. Who wouldn’t love to have broccoli ready at their disposal on the regular?
Whether it is for carving, for cooking, for eating, for entering competitions, pumpkins are a joy to grow and harvest. Did you know that pumpkins have been grown for almost 9000 years now? This certainly makes you a part of the legacy of this magnanimous fruit don’t you think? So I guess it is only fair that if you are or are planning to harvest pumpkins, you do it right. But this is a lot easier said than done for every second person has their own methodology of growing them and so naturally the question arises that which of the methods adopted is the best.
