Mustard Seed

Doug grew some great mustard seed this year, with quite a harvest (plenty of seeds). The original seed was from J. L. Hudson seeds. Here is the description:
Mustard Pink Petiole Mix. (b,h) VMUS-PT. Packet: $2.50. OTC ORGANIC SEED. Germination: 96%. Tested: 10/08. 1/4 oz: $7.50.
Incredible mix of shapes and colors - creamy yellow to emerald - green leaves, smoothly rounded to deeply cut, all with the leaf-stems in shades of pink or purple. Superb addition to baby salad leaf mixes. Colors best with cool weather and well-spaced plants. Organically grown.
Leave Doug a comment here if you want to buy some.

By the way, it makes me think:
The kingdom of God is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth. But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.
Kind of like what we're doing here.
