Komatsuna Seeds via Hudson Valley Seed Library (HVSL)

Komatsuna...Extremely cold hardy, ultra-mild Asian mustard green. Almost as sweet as spinach, but even easier to grow.
It took just 3.5 days for these greens to germinate. It's a mustard variety from Hudson Valley Seed Library, one of our favorite seed companies. 

Could it be that seed grown in upstate NY has an affinity for Chicago weather?

Also planted from HVSL: Chard Silverado and Collards Vates. 
Plus from Franchi: Spinach Winter Giant and Lacinato kale. 
We love the promise of spring greens...
