OK here a few pictures of a wonderful mustard that I harvested just before the rain hit this morning. It's an heirloom from Japan. Very distinctive full flavored mustard leaf that is only mildly pungent. It is also strikingly beautiful. It's named Japanese Large Red Leaf Mustard. Like all Brassica it grows best and has the richest flavor in cool temperatures, very early spring and mid to late autumn. This is the full size variety of the same dwarf version I grew last year. The leafs on this full size variety are harvested at 12-20 inches. WOW, what a great mustard!!!

Now in this next picture are a couple of Kohlrabi that I just harvested last weekend. The name of this Variety is 'Superschmelz' and is the ONLY Open Pollinated variety that can be allowed to grow to these very large sizes without becoming woody or pithy. I have grown this variety now for 3 years and I am TOTALLY happy with it.

Well that's it for this post, and remember "Go Play in the Dirt, it's FUN!
