Wild Mustard Fields

The wild mustard plants grew rampant out in the open fields of the Silicon Valley’s Golden Triangle. The fields I used to play in as a kid. This area is between highways 101, 880, and Interstate 237. The area is now occupied by tech companies and hotels.

Back in the early 60s before all those tech companies were built, these plants thrived everywhere. I remember there were Italian people picking these plants, there's a similar plant that grew wild in the countryside back home. The harvesting of these mustard greens was introduced by the Italians who in turn showed the Asians how to pick and cook these plants.

You might still see a few mustard plants growing around the Silicon Valley if you're lucky.
