arugula, peas, and herbs

here's what i read up on:
plant every three weeks. pots are a-okay. soil ph 6-7 with a 3" compost on top. space rows 1" apart or in beds 6" apart. harvest when leaves are 2-3" long- about 2-3 weeks after plants germinate. pick baby arugula leaves when they're still small. wash, wash, wash, and wash them again!

sow seeds 1" apart in a staggered pattern. fertilize when 2-4" tall. pick sugar snap when pods are plump and snap easy. leave them too long and it'll stop growing any more peas!

perrenial herbs - buy as plants not seeds
rosemary, chives, sage, spearmint, thyme
