Arugula (Rocket)





The tender, peppery little leaves make winter salads much more
interesting.
_Sowing date:_ I delay sowing until late August or early September
so my crowded patch of arugula lasts all winter and doesn't make
seed until March. Pregerminated seeds emerge fast and strong.
Sprouted in early October, arugula still may reach eating size in
midwinter.
_Spacing:_ Thinly seed a row into any vacant niche. The seedlings
will be insignificantly small until late summer.
_Irrigation:_ If the seedlings suffer a bit from moisture stress
they'll catch up rapidly when the fall rains begin.
_Varieties: _None.
