Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Easy to grow and frost tolerant. Sow directly into prepared beds 2-4 weeks before the last expected frost. Try broadcasting over a wide row and gently rake or tamp to a depth of 1/8 inch deep — barely cover! Grow in full sun and cool conditions with temperatures under 75˚F.
Pull or fork from the ground when stems are one inch or larger in diameter. In cold climates, you can continue the harvest by mulching heavily around plants.
