Pre-freeze arugula harvest

Pre-freeze arugula harvest, originally uploaded by txfiddlechick.

Only put in two arugula plants this fall, and have been harvesting a
bit here and there, but the little buggers kind of got away from me
this month while I was busy with some long-term graphic projects.

San Antonio is predicting a good, hard freeze this week — at least
three days straight of well below freezing temps, which is unusual for
us. So I cut the plants back in preparation. We'll be having salad
with dinner for the next few days, I'm thinking... (Not that I mind.
Arugula rocks!) Garden fresh salad and nearly February.

This is my first year trying to grow some veggies (emphasis on the
"trying" — mostly been feeding the bugs and wildlife) but loving our
long growing season.
