Question: My sprouts don’t develop into nice firm heads, but only loose leaves. What is wrong?

Answer: If the sprouts experienced extremely hot weather while they were in an important stage of early growth, it may have had this adverse effect on the sprout heads. A way to avoid this might be to use transplants instead of seed next growing season and be sure to maintain ample moisture.
