For many gardeners, they are somewhat intimidated when asked about how to use mustard seed extract for growing microgreens. Microgreens, as their name suggests, are tiny, adorable little plants that look a lot like tiny grapes. However, they are actually a member of the cucumber family, Cucurbitaceae, along with gourds and melons.
Microgreens are cucurbitaceae, so you won’t find them in the garden in the same place as your favorite gourmet vegetables. However, they can be successfully grown in any location that has cool weather. They prefer well drained soil with an acid pH level. When selecting the proper spot for planting your microgreen seedlings, it is important that you do so where the soil can receive ample drainage, not where water stands in.
Before you plant your seed, prepare the area by removing all weeds and rocks from the area. Once this has been done, add two to three inches of soil, making sure that it drains properly. Then select a spot on the back of a fence or on a slope. Keep in mind that planting your seed at the wrong site can result in failed crops. There are several different varieties of microgreens, so it’s best to start with one of the common varieties.
The most popular micro green variety is called Stringberry. This one sports a deep red color. It is very easy to maintain and grows up to four feet tall. It has two growth seasons which result in a harvest of bright red fruit in July and August and red seed pearls in September and October. These are easy to eat and make a delicious dessert.
If you would like to try another variety of microgreens, try Cinnamon Toast or Roasted Mandarin. They also have red color but are not as sweet as the above mentioned varieties. These are easy to grow and can be stored for a long time without spoiling.

Another good article that I found regarding how to use mustard seed extract is the following. It’s by Karen Smith. She recommends using it to enrich your soil’s rather than fertilizers.

If you don’t want to wait for that period, you can plant it the night before. However, if you are planning to plant it in the winter, you can place it in the morning or afternoon after the last frost. This is because the sap will be dried out and it can be utilized for the following day.
When it comes to the taste, it has a sweetish flavor. It’s not as strong as flax seed. It also doesn’t have a rich taste as walnuts. However, some people might find it overpowering especially those who prefer stronger flavors. However, it’s really easy to adjust its taste. Just add more of it and take away with some water.
Mustard seed extract is a great herb for growing your plants. However, you need to take care of it. You must keep it away from insects and other harmful elements. You must also make sure that you don’t harvest the seed too soon. If you harvest it too soon, it may not fully develop.
