What are the pros? delicious, hardy, self-seed
What are the cons? time consuming to pick
I was disappointed last year when the plants bolted in the heat of summer. However, they self-seeded, sprouted prolifically before winter, and overwintered. They even grew in the cracks of my garden boxes.
Although they are small and labor-intensive to pick, they have a beautiful buttery taste and look great in a salad. Some of them sprouted in straw mulch, which made them much cleaner and easier to harvest. This year I'll have them seed in straw intentionally.
For some reason, slugs don't seem to care about them, which along with their other great qualities makes them a keeper in western Oregon!
