I recently read somewhere in PF that brussels sprouts were perennials not the biennials I thought they were. In fact, the post said that they would produce brussels sprouts the second year as well. Anyone know about this? I was just about to pull up my brussels sprouts plants. Maybe I shouldn't.

http://www.uga.edu/vegetable/brusselsprouts.html They are biennials, meaning they have to go through a winter to set seeds. After seeding they are through. Like most plants, you extend their life if you can keep them from seeding,

Thanks for clarifying that. I guess I will pull up the plants after all.
