Arugula Flowers

It was 95 degrees for three straight days in a row this week. Surprising the only plants to bolt were the Rocket Arugula. They sprout these small off-white flowers. I like the delicate line on the petals.
The weather changed dramatically today and we even had a spot of unpredicted rain. I hope it stays a little more spring like for a while. I prefer my hot weather in June not April.

    Oh, mine are bolting here too and it hasn’t even hit 70 yet. They like to do that. 🙂 You know you can eat the flowers in salads, right? Kinda spicy.

      I think arugula and broccoli raab especially like to do that to me.
      Thanks for commenting.

    I agree–both on the prettiness of the arugula flowers and on having your how weather in the summer instead of in April! I think that my Facebook status for Sunday was something like, “Kim keeps reminding herself that this is April, not June… crazy weather!” 🙂
