One of the plants in the garden I am extra excited about is Arugula. I am a huge fan of this deliciously spicy green. It is a staple in many of the salads we make here at home. Since I love it so much it seemed like a great idea to grow it. We bought eight seedlings and transplanted them into rows in the middle of the herb section of the garden. The garden design is certainly being altered by the addition of fun new plants we come across. Below is a photo of the delicious arugula growing up a storm.
To harvest the arugula you can
snip off the young leaves, the younger leaves are more tender and less
bitter. Another option is to harvest the entire plant in one go which
gives you a bunch at a time. We will be trying both methods and replanting with seeds as we go. Arugula need lots of water and rich soil so don't be stingy with that compost.
