What are the pros? delicious, hardy, self-seed

What are the cons? time consuming to pick

Review:

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!

Review:

Tried this for the first time last season. They were one of the first seeds to emerge and started yielding tasty little leaves right away. They did great in pots and in the ground and tolerated my Pacific Northwest low light garden very well. Once they had bolted, the little flowers were so darling! It's a very well behaved little plant that doesn't get ugly and rangy when it goes to seed so it works well on path edges. I found the leaves to have a slight, sweet corn flavor, but most of the people I told that to thought I was nuts. But everyone agreed they are yummy!
