So I've heard Arugula is a cold weather crop but I just watched this interesting video from The Urban Farmer Curtis Stone:

He succession plants Arugula in the summer every week and within only 21 days is ready for harvest, just one harvest though, because it goes to flower fast.

So I'm thinking three 1 square foot sections in my garden for home use of it in salads, sowing 1 square foot per week -- high intensity (at least 9 plants per square foot).  We really do love the nutty & spicy flavor. It's quite amazing actually!  So much from each little bite!

Anyone else do this?

(My 2 square feet, which I've harvested from multiple times this spring, has recently bolted as the days got hotter.. pulled it up yesterday).
