this doesn't belong with mustard but its there as a comparison. Brassica's thriving, the others not, although they are said to be winter vegetables by most online sources. The only thing excusing the dilly dalliers is that they were sown much later. The brassicas were sown before winter hit hard.

I also lost a lot of good seedlings due to transplant damage as they are so fragile at this stage.
