Plant early fall, 2nd harvest in spring - saves effort with double harvest!

Prolific seeds. This is milder than arugula, juices fine if cut into 1/2 inch pieces so as not to clog the juicer expeller. It obviously can be braised, minced for soups or rice. I've grown it for 2 years, planting in October, harvesting only the tops because the cute rosettes like on the package show in spring. I also planted more in February 2014 to see how it weathers the summer. I live in the high desert (3500 ft) of southern California and the cool months are October through March. I have built raised bed planters and enclosed them with 1/4" hardware cloth and 50% Aluminet shade cloth, so it is cooler than being open to the sun. We'll see how long into the heat I can grow it :-) Paradise Farm, CA
