It didn't take long for it to take off...and take over the pot it was sharing with my beloved cos lettuce.
After just a few weeks it had started to flower so I thought I'd better get in and use it up. It's quite peppery in flavour, like rocket and I'd had grand plans of using this to make a pesto but when the time came I noticed that it had a plague of aphids hiding under the leaves...blergh!
Before the aphid invasion however I'd picked enough leaves to use in a smoked salmon pasta that we normally have with rocket. As I was preparing this I thought that the peppery flavour of the Mizuna might ruin the dish but it was actually great! I'd happily grown this again...sans aphids of course.
Happy gardening, Miss Piggy xoxo
