I planted my brussel sprouts in May. The plants are big but the sprouts aren't. I have cut the leaves off except the very top, and now the bottom sprouts have begun to get big leaves around them like they are loosening up. Have I waited too long to cut them off the stalk? How do you tell when they are ready?
