I messed up labelling a couple of seed trays and can't remember what I planted.

Anyone here know what they might be?

they look like they are in the brassica/mustard family, but from there I'm not able to id


Bloom where you are planted.

I would guess Turnip and Broccoli. Just a guess, this could be a fun game.

No idea on number 1, but I'd take a punt that 2 is kale. Any more clues Dave?

All of the guesses above, but adding radish as a possibility.

The young leaves definitely look like brassicas of some sort. The second one looks like broccoli, and the first mustard. Just a guess though.

Ok, after a bit of google image searching, here's my final answer. Number one, mustard:

Number two, kale:

That was fun!

Edit: Oops, I thought this was Robs thread. I guess this is still fun.

In any case, both have the same site requirements, and are used similarly, so you can just plant them out and wait and see for sure.

I would say they are arugula. Have you tasted them yet?
