k.h., that may be so--I have never worried about cross breeding, although for the past couple of years I have had a disappointing B. sprouts crop. Few sprouts and too small. Maybe that's the reason. Here is the garden two years ago, with the sprouts close to the cabbages. The gardeners I have consulted have not suggested as a possibly cause, but who knows?
Thanks, Joan! I love their innocent vigor and symmetry. My green beans are looking really good right now, too.
I agree Joan. I've always thought that nature looks more beautiful than the finest painting, sculpture, or any man-made object.
Don, your vegetables look more beautiful than the finest painting.

And I didn't show my 4 pots with lots of watermelon & muskmelon seeds in them that had zero plants show-up.
I think I fried them. It appears that even heat-loving watermelon won't germinate when someone forgets to open the lid to his little greenhouse, and temperatures rise to 150° F.
It is relative Randall - and I only showed you the good side of my 5 by 3 metres garden.
Envy, envy, envy! Those apricots, Spud! I got a measly one (1) off two trees. My nectarines are all wormy. And all the other garden photos make me jealous. But, like I always say, everything is relative--most people are envious of my yard and garden.
Spud, you can talk science here, all you want! It's my favorite topic too.
Don, I wish I could grow better cabbages. Here the cabbage flies and/or slugs have a field day. I'm getting some collard greens now, but far from pretty.
Not that I"m complaining. Harvested my first 2 figs today! I've been checking the trees every day. Sweet as honey.
