      Interesting! I wasn't familiar with this term before.

      I guess this is the same thing you see in tobacco plants, right before they go out and chop the stalks/flowers off.

      : every summer we play this game of "how long can we grow greens before they all bolt?" because we never know when it gets really hot and obnoxious.

      for the record, the arugula is much spicier when it's bolting (it's a mild peppery taste when its not).

      I did not say it like the sky was falling. I was simply trying to avoid wasting a nice row of second-growth arugula.
