Shall I Compare Thee To A Brussel Sprout?

Amusings from a gardener wondering aloud (can I say "ablog"?) about where her "Falstaff brussel sprouts" got their name.

Great Link!

Is there a thread here - what veg are you? - or Match the character to the veg?

Hamlet - an over cooked cabbage, (my entry).

Of course, gardeners have been steeling Shakespeare connections for generations, and I think Shakey himself wasn't adverse to name stealing in reverse (and I am not only thinking of The Dream).

Hmmm, stealing, huh? Listen, it was the brussel sprout that did it...:)
Sorry to say, I probably won't have many more posts on Shakespeare, but thanks for stopping by, and if you ever need your gardening fix...well, you know where to go...
