What do you suggest to use to rid the worms?
I'm guessing that what you have is an infestions of cabbage worms. Little green worms. The cabbage moth lays her eggs in the lower leaves of any plant in the cabbage family. The moths are the white "butterfly" looking moth that you see flying around in the daytime. Try hosing the worms off or plucking them off. Remove as many of the lower leaves as possible from the plants as this is where the eggs get layed. The eggs are a dark green in color. You can buy cabbage powder to sprinkle on the lower leaves to control this but I am unsure if you can put it right on the parts of the plant that you intend to eat. If you purchase a powder please read the instructions first to see if it is safe to use on all parts of the plant before you apply it.
I live in southern Delaware. What could be eating all the leaves off of my plants, and will they grow back? What can I do to stop this?
Your problem could be broccoli worms, which also commonly affect Brussels sprouts. This article should help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/broccoli/worms-in-broccoli-caterpillars-in-the-broccoli-head.htm

I have recently planted sprout plants, and although at least 3 have seemed to have taken quite well, 6 have wilted and died after the first three leaves went a purple colour and drooped. I believe that my soil is acidic. Could this be the problem, and if so, what can I do to resolve this issue, and why have the other plants not died? Thanks in anticipation.
It does sounds like a nutrient issue, but not so much acidic soil by itself. Vegetables actually do ok in somewhat acidic soil.
Purple color in the plants indicates a phosphorus deficiency, which can be made worse by acidic soil or cold weather. A severe deficiency could kill the plants. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm

The leaves are real big and not forming. What should I do?
Give it some more time. Brussels sprouts are a long season crop and need quite a bit of time to form heads.
This year is the first time we are doing a veggie garden. We always did tomotoes, but this year we also did Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, and squash. Our Brussels sprout plants have yellow flower-looking things coming out of them. It looks like we have some tiny Brussels sprouts, the size of a pea coming out too. Seeing how I have never done a veggie garden, I don't know if this is normal or not.
