I did seed balls with a variety of plants but unfortunately can't identify what came up. (should take notes next time). It looks like a kale leaf but lighter in color. I took a nibble and it is hot like wasabi and peppery in flavor like nasturtium. Thinks for any ideas.

Could be mustard, radish or turnip, or some other sort of thing in that family.

Do you have a picture of the whole plant and maybe dig about the base of the plant to discover what colour the roots are. I'm betting on radish, but it could be other things.

Thanks. I know I didn't plant radish in that spot. Yes to mustard and turnip though. Turnip greens are edible correct? At any rate I love the flavor so I'll be nibbling away
