Growing Mustard Greens (source)

Β 

Growing mustards are a quick and easy crop to grow in your home garden.Β  They are a spicy green, which will quickly become one of your favorite crops.Β 


When to Plant
When growing from seed, start them outdoors 3 weeks before the last frost. For a more steady harvest, plant seeds about every 3 weeks or every month to give you a successive harvest. Mustard greens prefer cooler weather, so plant late in the summer for a fall harvest, or very early in spring before the summer heat sets in.

How to Plant

Plant seeds a 1/2" deep, and thin to 3 inches.Β 

If you are planting seedlings, space them 3-5 inches apart.Β  Like planting seeds, you can transplant new seedlings every 3 or 4 weeks to get a successive harvest.


How to Harvest

Harvest mustard green leaves when they are young and tender. Older leaves are bitter and tough.

To harvest, pick individual leaves and leave the plant to produce more, or harvest the entire plant to eat all at once.
