As a gardener, I love to check out other vegetable gardens. Outside the National Museum of American History in Washington, DC, I stumbled up the Victory Garden, a re-creation of a WWII era vegetable and flower garden. In this lovingly-tended garden, I spotted the bright green mizuna.
Mizuna is a slightly bitter leafy green that is excellent this time of year and so easy to grow. Being a very early spring green, we're usually eating it before pests and garden insects become a problem. Mizuna is so good added to a spring greens mix for salads!
