Learn to Grow it
You can sow these seeds directly into the soil 1-2 weeks after your last frost date. If you sow a section or row every two or three weeks, you can get a continuous crop.
These seeds can be broadcast evenly in sections of the garden and thinned to 1-2 inches as they mature. Plant your seeds 1/8-1/4 in. deep.
Keep the soil around these plants moist until the seed has germinated and weed free throughout the growing season. Mulching the soil around the plants will help keep the roots cool.
This crop prefers to grow in cool seasons, so gardeners in Zones 8 and warmer should plant this vegetable in the fall. The shade from taller plants can help keep this vegetable cool in sunny gardens and warm climates.
