Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Old Fashioned Mustard Seed
B. juncea (42 days) Old Fashioned Mustard is THE mustard typically found in Southern gardens of yesteryear. It is still widely grown in the South for its reliability and great flavor. Bright green, frilled and quick growing. Old Fashioned is delicious either steamed or sauteed, it can also very popular eaten raw, in a mixed green salad.
Very pleased that the seeds germinated so well. Growing great.
Old Fashioned Mustard
Planted a small amount and seedlings appeared in less than five days. Very encouraging. Wish you had this as part of a bird seed mix. In fact, I would Really like to find a good bird feeder mix that has lots of mustards, umbells, and other seeds that I would welcome as volunteers. Radish, mustard, mustard spinach, amaranth, peas and vetch, anything that will grow in the marginal areas where the birds scatter them. Probably too expensive to make such a mix, but would be a three way win. Great bird food, great insect plants, and great naturalizers in this climate.
