How do I Grow Mustard Greens?

Direct sow mustard seeds in the early spring at a spacing of 9 per square-foot. Succession plant every 2-3 weeks until late spring, for a continuous harvest. Skip summer plantings because they don’t grow well in warm weather, then resume planting at the end of August and into the fall.

Harvesting

Harvest mustard leaves once they are about 4-6" long. Try using the "cut and come again" harvesting technique, this is where you cut the entire plant down to 1", leaving the root system intact. The plant will regrow its leaves for multiple harvests. You can also allow the leaves to grow larger and pick them from the outside in as you need them. With each harvest the leaves will get more spicy. 

Helpful Tips and Tricks

They are quick to bolt, try heavy mulch and a shade cover if the weather gets really hot and dry. If they do bolt, the flowers are edible and delicious.
