Turnips come to harvest 30 to 60 days after sowing. Lift roots when they are 2 to 3 inches in diameter; lift them carefully with a garden fork. Leaves can be cut when they are 12 inches long; cut outside leaves first. Thinned seedlings can be harvested for greens.
Also, how long does it take for mustard greens to mature?
Mustard grows fast, so you can begin picking leaves in about 4 weeks, when the leaves are 6 to 8 inches long. Left alone, leaves reach their full size of 15 to 18 inches long in about 6 weeks. To maintain the rapid leafy growth, the plant needs fertilizer.
Is it too late to plant turnip greens?
Turnip greens are easy to grow in any well-drained soil. Set out turnip green plants 2 to 4 weeks before the last frost in spring and from late August to October for a fall crop in most areas. In zones 9 and 10 they can be planted throughout fall and winter.
Can you grow mustard greens in a container?
Plant 2-3 mustard seeds one-third to one-half-inch deep, 6 inches to 1 foot apart, as early as the soil can be worked in spring or directly after the hottest part of the summer season for a fall crop. Fill pots with loose soil and plant 2-3 seeds in each one, if you prefer container planting.
