Brussel Sprouts Didn’t Produce
In the last two years, my brussel sprouts produced very well to could be better. This year they didn't produce at all. We live in northern Missouri and have had plenty of moisture. We fertilized and weeded, but still didn't get any. This makes the third crop planted in the same spot. Don't know why they didn't make much. Can you give me some ideas as to what is wrong?

They don't develop heads for the same reason they bolt, which is the heat. In addition, there may be too much nitrogen in the soil, which is focusing more leafy growth. Adding additional phosphorus (like bone meal) may help offset this and aid in head development.
