Bolting Beauty

This time of year a lot of early season brassicas and such are bolting fast. For some of these plants this may mean it's time for the worm bin or compost pile, but for a few gems it can be time for a showy new life. Arugula, Mustard Greens, and Kale are a few of the great greens that can create breezy, vase worthy arrangements perfect for a summer brunch or dinner party. Once a day or two has passed however, be aware that your likely to find your table surface dusted with flower petals so be attentive when dealing with delicate table finishes. Otherwise these flowers can last for up to a week inside.
