Arugula in Bloom

March 7, 2013

It's been a bolting frenzy around my garden lately! I always leave some of my fall planted crops of salad greens and broccoli to go to flower come February. Because I keep beehives, I always want to make sure there is a food source around for my girls even during cold months.

This is a shot of Arugula in bloom in my front-yard garden. Because I allow some of it to go to flower each late-winter/early-spring, this stand simply naturally re-seeds itself and I rarely have to plant any new Arugula. Plus the bees love it! Remember, you can collect seed from open-pollinated and heirloom varieties of veggies. Arugula is quite prolific and pretty!
