Brussels sprouts [Filler]

Never knew how these grow. Huh.
And I have photographed this species of plant before,

From Missouri Botanical Garden, » “Brassica oleracea (Gemmifera Group), commonly called Brussels sprouts, is a cool weather vegetable that is grown for harvest of miniature cabbage-like buds (1-2" wide) which form in leaf axils along the 2-3' tall stems of this plant. … Brussels sprouts is in the same species (Brassica oleracea) as a number of other cool season vegetables including kale, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and kohlrabi. Common name reportedly comes from the popularity of this vegetable in Brussels Belgium commencing in the 1300s.”
