Alamo Placita arugula seeds will try anything once: Kenny Be's Hip Tip

While the battle for blue ribbons rages between homegrown fruits, vegetables and flowers at the first annual Denver County Fair, it is almost certain that the arugula plant won't join the competition. Like the residents of the Alamo Placita neighborhood, arugula is frequently cultivated, but it can never be considered fully domesticated... As seen in the illustration above, Alamo Placita arugula will thrive in any location - from backyard garden to high-rise condo patio container. These seeds love to be planted in dry, disturbed soil and are easy to grow in warm weather or cool.

Like the residents of the neighborhood, Alamo Placita arugula has a peppery taste that is a perfect compliment to cheesy companions. The plant is used as a leaf vegetable and is high in vitamin C and potassium.

The most organic of Alamo Placita neighborhood gardeners consider arugula to be an aphrodisiac and will resow plant seeds every three weeks throughout the growing season.
