This is my first time too! I still have 3 stalks out in the garden, but 2 of them aren't even close to being ready. My hope is that they'll survive over the winter as my collard greens did. They look a lot alike in the leaf area. I think you can pick them throughout the growing season without cutting down the stalk too, but I just went ahead and pulled the one I used. I'm learning my gardening as I go. I use the square foot gardening method and have had really good results. DH got me an organic gardening mag subscription and I've found good advice and recipes in there. I went to U Tube to see about the brussel sprouts...they took so long to get to the point where I could harvest them.
