Hey! So I got really impatient and decided to plant some Brussels sprouts seeds on March 27th. The seedlings are over a week old now and they look really healthy so far. But after reading more about growing Brussels sprouts, I'm very doubtful the plants will survive the hot summer in NYC. Is there a chance they can survive? Any tips for growing them in extremely warm temperatures? Or is it not worth it at all?
Thank you!!!

I managed to grow Brussels sprouts in Fairfield County, in southern Connecticut about 50 miles from NYC. I think you will be okay.
