Planting and Harvesting Tips:
This cool-weather crop can be planted early, as soon as the soil can be worked in spring and weeks before the last frost. Sow directly into prepared beds — no more than 1/2 inch deep — with rows spaced 8-18 inches apart. Thin to one seedling for every two inches.
Pull roots when they are of usable size — usually one inch in diameter — and relatively young. Check often, as they can turn from tasty to terrible in a short period of time.
