Arugula

I love arugula, it’s distinctive peppery bite adds so much flavour to salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and pasta.

And arugula is so easy to grow. I plant directly from seed in the early spring. Arugula is one of the few plants i prefer to grow from seed. I can usually use one packet of seeds a season because it makes great ground cover and I usually do a second sowing.

Arugula can handle a bit of cold, partial shade, and it can grow is depleted soil which makes a great addition to some less than ideal spots.

Despite all the sowing I can never seem to have too much arugula.
