When harvesting your brassicas, leave the root in the ground with a few leaves still attached. In a few weeks time you will find you have tiny cabbages sprouting out from the stump which can be used as spring greens in late summer! Also baby cauliflowers and broccoli sprouts.
Plant your Brussels sprouts in the Spring according to package directions and you will have some good eating. Plant them somewhere out of your way, maybe along the edge of your garden. They will produce in the late fall, even in the snow.

How do I grow Brussels sprouts in Las Cruces, New Mexico?
"Growing Brussels sprouts requires cool weather. The ideal climate is the fog belt of the Pacific Northwest, but they will grow in just about any part of the country. A slow-growing, long-bearing crop, Brussels sprouts should be planted in early spring, or mid- to late summer for a crop that matures in the fall." bonnieplants.com/
