From Your Garden

Bunnies Scorn Arugula, We love it

I hoped to be awash in tomatoes. I had plenty, but the rabbits ate them. I am engaged in full-on bunny wars.
    So I choose to celebrate and harvest what the bunny does not eat: arugula.
    I have been growing arugula nonstop since last year. Every three weeks I plant a new patch. While arugula is milder in the cooler months, the hot weather brings out an extra spicy bite that can be tamed with other salad greens. Our favorite summer meal is a BAT: bacon, arugula and tomato sandwich. The tomatoes are local heirlooms from the farmers market.
