Zippy And Zesty

The August planted arugula has grown into perfect green lusciousness, and I have fallen in love with it all over again! Arugala adds a unique zippy, zesty flavour, thus its alias of ‘rocket’, ‘salad rocket’ or ‘roquette’.  The tasty leaves can be added to salads, top a stir fry, or spice up an omelet or sandwich – yum!  And these peppery leafy greens are so easy to grow; sprinkle the seeds as evenly as you can over fresh soil in a ground or container garden, cover with another 1/4 to 1/2 inch of soil and then water.  I haven’t tried them indoors, but may this winter!
