Arugula’s Spicy Sister

I promise I will get over my Arugula posts…right after this one. Did you know there is something called Wasabi Arugula? It’s the spicy sister of Arugula with the taste of wasabi. The whole plant is edible. If you like wasabi, you should try some – spicy sisters need love too!

Arugula…oh how I wished I loved thee…

Lots of folks love Arugula — I am just not one of those people. They tell me that the Arugula Lansdowne Urban Farms grows is very good. I’ve tried it…but its not going to be in a salad that I eat anytime soon. Maybe it should be on your salad?

What gets you excited?

At Lansdowne Urban Farms its getting new seeds to try! This is a recent batch of new seeds. Can’t wait to see how they do in our hydroponic environment.

Ah…our crops are diversifying. Try something new like Tatsoi! It’s a super nutritious green not readily available in your local grocery store. We look forward to introducing you to new greens. More varieties are coming soon! Also this week, we have a Lettuce Leaf Basil special. Order early for best results.

We have only one requirement, that we use no soil, it has to be grown hydroponically. We are growing food in buckets and even in downspouts purchased at Home Depot. If
