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.

yes, this shows how timing is everything, and really motivates me to minimize transplanting trauma, which came with the dill and onion, when they were tender and just sprouted. The literature said this was a great time when least shock occurs, and I wonder if this is really true. I also lost a lot of good seedlings due to transplant damage as they are so fragile at this stage.
