Slow to the game, mustard!
I planted mustard greens last Fall, and they've recently bolted into the most gorgeous yellow flowers. This weekend, while checking out the flowers, I realized one of the older stalks had formed seed pods. So I split a little pod open and discovered bright green MUSTARD SEEDS! I'm embarrassed to admit the discovery came as a complete surprise to me--I had no idea that mustard seeds came from mustard greens. Hello cycle of life, nice to meet ya.

The lemon tree is blooming this year, meyer lemons are on their way!
