Indian Mustard Sprouts!

On Sunday, we replanted our herb garden. Today (Tuesday!) we already had a bunch of mustard sprouts!! What you see here are sprouts of Brassica juncea, which is not the same mustard that comes in bright yellow plastic bottles. (However, it is sometimes used to make brown mustard.)
We're growing this particular mustard for things like salads, soups, and a few Indian dishes.
Of course, as these little guys grow, we'll have to spread them out a bit. we've started them in the herb garden where there's room, but many will move to the vegetable garden.

According to the seed packet, these fellas are supposed to take 10 days to germinate. Ha!
