I have planted my Brussel sprouts with the recommended spacing. It looks like that space between could be used for other things. Are there any vegetables or other edibles that I could grow in the spacing between each Brussel sprout plant? I was thinking maybe fennel or carrots or even leeks or potatoes?

Carrots, radish and some herbs might work, but lettuce would be better as it is shallow rooted and fast growing. The spacing is for the roots of the Brussels sprouts plant so you don't want to plant anything that would interfere with the roots.
