White MustardThis White Mustard from winter sowing produced fresh bitter leaves, that I added to salads.
Now the plants are bolting, and soon they'll start to bloom.

FlaxThis tiny plants are flax, they will produce blue flowers and then the flax seeds.

BarbabietolaThis plant is an Egyptian Beetroot, I can't wait to harvest it!
