Video Length: 3:10
Produced by: Danielle Sherry, Sarah Breckenridge, and Robyn Doyon-Aitken. Videography by Gary Junken. Edited by Cari Delahanty

Welcome to Homegrown/Homemade. I'm a cook who needs some help in the garden and Fine Gardening's Danielle Sherry is a gardener who needs some help in the kitchen. We've teamed up to show gardeners and cooks of all skill levels how get the most out of their crops from seed to plate. In this series, we tackle that spicy salad favorite, arugula.

Episode One: How to Plant Arugula
In this episode, we head to the garden to plant arugula, a favorite green of mine for its sharp, spicy flavor. In my previous attempts to grow arugula, the greens were too stemmy and I didn't get much to cook with. Danielle advises that simply choosing a new variety is the answer to my problems.

lemonade writes: Just a caution: arugula seeds are VERY small. My dad is a super gardener and he recommends seeds at about half inch intervals. Its also good to plant it every month or so to have a constant supply over the summer.

Pielove writes: Great video-- I need to plant some arugula, as it is rare in my local markets. You should to a video on what NOT to plant-- horseradish, mint, lovage. Posted: 3:53 pm on May 14th
