Arugula, the presidential salad, is not only for the elite any more. Our first planting has "bolted" and is preparing to present us seeds for next year's crop. Why would I call them weeds and pull them out for compost? I refuse.
"I'm sorry," I say to all you beauties out there, parked between Romaine and, is it, Buttercrunch?
By the way, have you ever seen a peanut plant? I understand it has two sets of chromosomes, one from each of two different species ("amphidiploid" or "allotetraploid"), and it's not a nut. Maybe later I'll include a picture showing the flower stalks burying into the ground, where the fruit will form.
