Writing A Book

Sorry I have not posted for awhile.  I have been finishing an herb book which is now available for Kindle and hopefully soon for Nook.

Check out What About Herbs? and let me know what you think.

Please pass the link for the book for those you know who may be interested. Thanks!

Arugula

Arugula Eruca vesicaria sativa also known as rocket, roquette, ruchetta, or rucula can be classified as an herb or a green.  Arugula is a peppery, tangy flavored leafy plant that can be used raw or cooked.  Arugula has an unusual flavor and scent which is not appreciated by all.  I love arugula whether in a salad or scrambled eggs.  It can also be used in place of basil in pesto, used in sandwiches, or in soups.  The flowers are edible, have a similar but milder flavor, and are used as garnishes.
Arugula is easy to grow from seed in cool weather.  Plant before your last average frost date or in a shadier part of your garden.  You can also plant a few weeks before frost in the fall for a late harvest.  Arugula may reseed if allowed to flower.
Arugula grows wild in the Mediterranean.
