Brussel Sprouts

I left my brussel sprouts from last season in the ground over the winter. We had a mild winter and plants are still alive and starting to grow. Do these plants have any value? Or should I just pull them out?

They will produce some nice flowers and lots of seeds for next year! I would leave a few plants grow. I have one left growing!

They will bolt this year (as bobberman said, produce flowers and seeds) so it's up to you if you want to leave them for bee attraction purposes! I just put this years brussels sprouts into the ground, hopefully i'll have better luck this year with getting some sprouts to grow!
