For the first time ever (thank you mild winter!), our Brussel sprouts from last year survived through the cold and immediately went to flower as Spring set in.
Our goal is to save seeds from everything we grow, so we were excited to see this happening. Having never saved seed from a Brassica before, we’re not sure when to attempt to collect them. Should we let them dry out on the plant or cut the flowers at some point and dry them out in a more controlled ‘collection’ zone? Our fear is that they’ll drop the seeds on their own and we’d like to catch them before that. Any insights on this would be helpful.
