Sowing the seeds

Start inside 6 to 8 weeks before last expected frost.  Sow ½” deep and 4” between rows.


This is a cool season crop, transplant into the garden with 12” to 18” between each plant.


Cut individual leaves when they are about 3” long.  Cut the lower leaves first and avoid cutting the growing tip.  As the weather gets warmer the leaves will get tougher.
