  • Sow about 6 seeds per foot directly into the garden as soon as soil
  • can be worked in early spring to summer through mid spring.
  • Cover seeds with 1/2 inch of fine soil.
  • When seedlings are 3 to 4 inches high thin to 8 to 12 inches apart.
  • Use leaves from young thinned plants in salads.
  • Start cutting outer leaves when plants are about 8 inches tall for extended harvest,
