brussel sprouts and broccoli

Both are cool weather crops that don't like the heat of summer. Your climate may not be as hot as mine, but here we can't grow those through the summer. I plant my seeds again in August for a fall crop. Just have to keep them real well watered at the beginning, but by the time they've sprouted and started developing, it's starting to cool off.
