Mustard Greens Break Germination Records! (Not Really)

It’s really hard to photograph things under blue/red LED grow lights, but the mustard green seedlings are up.

The Spinach-Mustard, Red Giant Mustard, and Southern Giant Curled Mustard we’re all poking their heads out of the ground on Sunday (Feb. 14th). I had planted them on the 8th, so that’s less than a week to germinate.

This seemed really fast to me, and I thought the heated seed mat was the ticket, but as it turns out, mustard seed germinates in 4-7 days, so 6 days until germination is hardly a record.

No sign of the onions, fennel, or cabbage yet, but they still have a day or two left in their typical germination window.
