Mustard greens are growing

Finally, my mustard greens are growing from dried seeds. I didn't buy them, I had plucked the seeds from the vegetables scraps that I had planted. Bought some mustard greens from market, cut off 3inch from the base. Soft stems with leaves were delicious when stir fried with chopped garlic. As for the mustard greens base left, I planted in a small flowerpot without roots. Yes, no roots but the veggie did grew tall, sprouted lots of yellow pretty flowers and buds of seeds. When the buds became dried up, I opened them up and spreaded the dried seeds in another pot. Now, I have new shoots of mustard seeds that will grow leaves.

That was a very clever way to grow Mustard Greens. I wouldn't have thought the stems would grow into flowers.
