Entry: Sherfy Garden Week 7 Dec 8, 2016

The next time I went was on November 8th. This time, me and Jolene went with the sole intention of picking the brussels sprouts. Throughout the entire time I had been there, these sprouts did not give off a single harvest. The bulbs were tiny and just did not have enough "meat" on them to eat. When we arrived to the garden, they were still not ready. This was kind of discouraging, but we looked it up and found that brussels sprouts are normally harvested during the first frost, which had not come yet. Another reason we realized that they were not ready yet was because we found out too late that we had to cut all of the leaves around the actual sprouts for maximum growth. With that said, we decided to leave them for one more week. Instead, we decided to pick as many spices and herbs we could. We harvested cilantro, lemon balm, oregano, mint, thyme, and basil. Even though we went there with a specific goal in mind that we could not complete, we were very productive.
