Peppery, nutty full of flavor, this arugula grown in green wall panels in our small greenhouse is a treat. It adds an incredible taste to a salad. Last planted in December, we have been enjoying salads from this green wall most of the winter. Also growing is celery, carrots, red lettuce, broccoli rabe and other lettuce varieties.
The celery is small but a few stalks can be picked and added to salad giving it a great flavor. The carrots are growing slowly as the days get longer and they get more sun their growth will accelerate.
We prepare arugula salad with a olive oil since “scientists believe that certain compounds found in vegetables like arugula are actually better absorbed when eaten with a little fat.”
