We let some of the mustard green go to seed (bolt) thinking we'd make home made mustard. Imagine my surprise when we tried to harvest the seeds from the seed pods. There are only 4 or 5 mustard seeds in each pod and there are hundreds and hundreds of pods on a single plant. It is a lot more work than I imagined and these seeds are really, really tiny. That's my thumb and forefinger holding one seed pod.


  1. Interesting photograph - and were you able to prepare any condiment mustard from your harvest?

  2. It's a wonder mustard isn't much more expensive!

  3. We're still separating the seeds from the pods! It could be a while...
