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?

Daniel, have you tried DE a on top the soil beneath the cabbage plants? The crushed shells in the DE are supposed to kill the slugs.

Don't, your garden reminds me of the ones my parents grew. Always weed free and thriving.
Question; I've always read that cabbage and Brussels sprouts shouldn't be planted close together because of cross breeding. Did I just remember it wrong?

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.
