Arugula Harvest!

First harvest today!  Not really enough for two people, but when mixed with some salad greens from the CSA, it will be fabulous!

I was going to wait the full 40 days that it said on the seed packet, but then I read online that arugula can be ready in 3 or 4 weeks (tomorrow will be a month since I planted it) and to be sure to harvest the leaves when still young or they can get bitter.  Also because I was too softhearted to thin properly, they’re all over each other, which would be okay, but crowding out some nasturtiums, and that’s a capital offense.  Great excuses!

No pictures yet.  Too busy soaking, spinning, eating.  Will post pics soon!
