Easy as Arugula

Looking for an easy green to grow this spring? Like a bit of zest in your greens? Try sowing some arugula seeds this spring. The greens have a bit more zing in their bite than lettuce leaves and tend to be more forgiving to grow. Arugula greens might droop a bit if you forget to water them multiple days in a row, but will thrive with just a bit of neglect. (There were days last summer when I forgot to water my re-seeded volunteers, but it didn’t harm them too much in the long run.)

Growing arugula is easy!

The plants are now taller than my three year old and strong enough to stand up to a preschooler's roughhousing. I might even get him to eat a few leaves one day.

Give it a try! Arugula
