As a 'freebie' with my 2017 seed order I've received a quite sizeable packet of this seed, stated on the packet as a 'Green Manure and Biofumigant'. I'm unlikely to use it for that purpose but, on a Canadian site, it was said to be edible as 'greens' but no details. Does anyone know if it has a food value? If so, how is it used?

from growveg.uk: https://www.growveg.co.uk/guides/the-benefits-of-growing-mustard/ so, it should be edible, but whether you lie the taste of it is another matter!

Thanks, Tippben. Funnily enough that was the site I found too, but no tips on how to use them.

Runner beans en route tomorrow all being well..

Try using it as you would spinach or the tops of young turnips - steamed, in a stir fry or just wilted with a little butter, perhaps.
