Creasy greens (Barbarea verna), which go by many names including highland cress, upland cress, and early yellow rocket are part of the Brassica family. “Brassicas you say?” Yes! These leafy greens are related to our garden staples like kale, broccoli, and cabbage. They are very cold hardy and do great during the colder months here in Virginia.  These seeds come from the ones that grew in my grandmothers farming fields when i was a kid.  My family has saved them over the years.  If you buy them, please let a few go to seed and keep the tradition going.  Were so happy to share this plant that my grandmother used to harvest and cook along with a ham jowl and potatoes with you and your family.
