Like many lettuce-type crops, arugula can be harvested in two forms: baby and mature.
The key to harvesting arugula so that it continues to grow and allow for future harvests is to only take about ⅓ of the plant at a time.
You’ll have the opportunity to harvest your arugula over a dozen times before the plant becomes too bitter during bolting or dies back due to the cold.
You can grow arugula microgreens in a pot with dirt, but it is easier to harvest them if you use a special microgreen growing tray.

If you plan to harvest seeds from your plants, keep caring for them as you were before until the flowers have formed and dried.
