I need help

By Penny Stine

While there are many who would agree that my gardening obsession is a bit much, specifically, I need help in knowing what to do with this mustard, which is now coming up in several places in my garden. (It's the pretty red-leaved plant.) It's also strong and a bit on the hot and spicy side - think horseradish rather than habanero.  I'm not from the south; I have no idea what to do with mustard greens. Or reds, as the case may be.

I also need suggestions for these, which are chamomile flowers. I could probably pick this amount of chamomile flowers every day. Yes, I know I can make great tea, but it's only May and the plants continue blooming through October. I don't drink that much tea. 

Let me know if anyone has a suggestion for either one. I don't think combining them is an option...
