In South Florida, our growing season is fall, winter, spring. I find that my arugula, when grown in the middle of winter, is the sweetest. I love nibbling it as I garden. As the weather warms up towards March and April (80 degrees), arugula gets bitter. This may explain why you don't enjoy it so much in August.katydidonce said:While weeding and waiting anxiously for the tomatoes to ripen, I've resorted to nibbling arugula. Blech? I don't know why I grow it!
Maybe you should bring a bottle of oil and balsamic vinegar when you go out to nibble.katydidonce said:Wendy,
This summer has been so cool, the arugula hasn't even started to bolt; it tastes the same as spring crops. I just have an issue with that green and a few others; I'm not sure I've acquired the taste for it yet but can't seem to stop testing my palate. Strange, I know. :haha:
