Learn to Grow it
You can sow these seeds directly into the soil 1-2 weeks before 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 to create a bed of tender leaves. Plant your seeds 1/8-1/4 in. deep.
This is a "cut-and-come-again" plant so you can harvest leaves as they mature. Keep the leaves well watered and 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.
