Mustard. Many people dont realize that a mustard seed plant is the same plant as a mustard greens plant (Brassica juncea). This versatile plant can be grown as a vegetable and eaten like other greens or, if allowed to flower and go to seed, mustard seeds can be harvested and used as a spice in cooking or ground into a popular condiment.
When selecting mustard seeds for planting, any mustard plant grown for greens can also be grown for mustard seed. Plant the mustard seed about three weeks before your last frost date. Since youll be harvesting the mustard seed, theres no need to use succession planting like you do with mustard greens. Plant your mustard seeds about 20 to 30mm apart.
Once they sprout, thin the seedlings so that they are 150mm apart. Mustard plants grown for seed are planted further apart than plants grown for just leaves as the mustard plant will be getting much larger before it flowers.
