Tips for Growing Mustard Greens in Your Garden
Mustard greens are one of the easiest leafy vegetable crops to grow in your garden. This delicious vegetable needs little care and has become a gardening favorite. Growing and eating mustard greens is very popular in the Southern part of the US. Mustard greens are a cool weather crop that can be harvested in as little as 45 days.
Try to choose a location where the plants can grow in both full and partial sunlight like under the branches of a tree in a corner of the garden. Mustard greens tend to wilt if exposed to too much sun during the warmer days of summer so it is important to keep plants well watered.
