Photos 1 and 2 were taken 2011, July 2 on the bank of the Severn, above Tewkesbury. Photos 3 and 4 were taken earlier, 2-11, June 18, below Garden Cliff on the bank of the Severn estuary. It is interesting how differently the two locations mature.

Black mustard is one of the seeds used to make mustard powder. It is spicier than white mustard and gives the mix most of its heat.

The young leaves can be added to salads
