Jinx was very curious as to what Robert was doing.
Now the trick was to remove the sprouts from the stem. And boy was that job. You need to snap them off with a lot of strength and twisting. Sometimes I gave up and went for a little knife. I got to thinking about a comparison between how firmly these sprouts were clinging to the stem and how we need to be just as strong as we sling to the Iron Rod....forever...never to be twisted or pulled off.
I think we will need to plant more next year. This was so much fun!
