This arugula was developed locally. It has a huge production of large full leaves. Slower to bolt than other arugula. When planted in late August or early September, it can last for months if the weather doesn't get too hot and cause it to bolt.
Red Russian Kale grows leaves that are flat, toothed, grey-green leaves with purple stems and veins really brighten after frosts. Tender for salads and good for bunching, the red and purple hues turn a rich, dark green colour when cooked.
IMPROVED SIBERIAN Kale
Soft, large leaves that grow well through the summer heat, perfect for smoothies or for sautéing. After the winter, they grow back very curly, making them even better for kale chips. One of the few kales that produces new leaves through the winter months. 50 days to maturity. All Comox Valley Winner 2015
Ellen's Frilly Kale
Sergeant oak leaf
This lettuce is a medium to large semi-frilled, loose-leaf green lettuce. It grows in an elongated, rosette shape, and is narrow and small at the base fanning out to a wide, curly, loose top. The deeply lobed leaves branch out in all directions, and are tender, smooth, and broad with many curls and frills. The lettuce is firm and crisp with a mild, sweet, and nutty flavour. Ideal for cut-and-come-again harvesting, which allows the lettuce to continue growing new leaves as the outer leaves are harvested.
Vulcan lettuce is an early maturing loose Red Leaf variety. It is a hardy, slow to bolt and vigorous cut-and-come-again lettuce that offers two to three harvests per season. Vulcan lettuce has crimson red tinted leaves that give way to green midribs and a succulent translucent pale green base. Its leaves are ruffled with a flexible, buttery texture and a lean, mild flavour.
