Well, I could grow the greens, but they don't like the clay soil, prefer
alkaline soils over our native acid soil, and it pretty hard to harvest
enough seeds to make mustard. I don't care for the greens and neither
does Ron, preferring other less bitter greens that do better in my soil.
To clarify, to grow enough mustard to collect seeds for use, I would
have to plant large areas, like the pasture, which is unimproved
soil...rocky, clayey, and acid..I could grow the greens inside the
garden proper, but that doesn't yield enough seed to make mustard and we
don't like the greens...hope that makes sense..
