Planting Instructions:

Start indoors 3-4 weeks before last spring frost. Sow seed thinly 1/4 inch deep and press soil down slightly; germination should occur in full sun or partial shade after last chance of frost. For direct sowing, plant seeds 4-6 inches apart and thin seedlings 16 inches apart. For a continuous harvest, sow a new crop every 2 weeks until the heat of the summer. For best flavor, keep the soil rich and moist; mulch to keep soil cool and control any weeds. Remove developing seeds stalks to slow bolting; after bolting, cut off at ground level to allow a new crop.
