Crazy Gorgeous Mustard Greens
I’m loving my gorgeous purple mustard greens and am showing them off for a quasi-wordless Wednesday post. I planted them from starts in late fall and now they’re going gangbusters. They are spicy delicious. I sautée them, just like you would with spinach or chard. If you want more of their hot kick, cook them just slightly. And, as some of you know, I’m obsessed with gardening in purple and really like this major pop of color in my garden.
Mustard greens are super easy to grow, and don’t seem to get infested with the various bugs that my other greens get. Maybe that’s because I’ve been growing through winter, but I haven’t seen even a hint of an evil cabbage worm. And the aphids that have thoroughly infested my kale haven’t even touched these. Mustard greens will also do just fine in pots, although they probably won’t get as large. The last couple years my mustard greens have been in containers and, yes, it’s so exciting to see how much bigger they can get in the ground. Although really big pots might do the trick too.
