This is the cabbage and mustard family.
Members of this family are often referred to as crucifers, brassicas, or cole crops. Ever wonder why the simple salad of sliced cabbage is called Coleslaw?
The cabbage family includes cabbages, radish, mustard greens, turnips, rutabaga, arugula, the spices mustard, horse radish and wasabi, and ornamentals such as candytuft. These are heavy feeders and go well planted in beds which previously had Leguminosaes.
Brassicas are cool season crops that can be started indoors and then placed outside for the spring in May with some offering window for a second sowing early autumn.
All above ground parts of cruciferous plants are edible, with kale and collards benefitting from a light frost, which sweetens the leaves.
