Plant in full sun by direct seed after last frost or start indoors 2 weeks before last frost date and transplanted after the weather has thoroughly settled. It benefits from evenly moist soil and a ring of mulch around seedlings to keep weeds down and retain moisture before its large shading leaves take over the job. Can be planted in successions every 4 weeks for sustained harvest until frost. Plant Seeds: Direct seed 1/2" deep with 6" between seeds or start indoors with 2-3 seeds per 4" pot 2-3 weeks before last frost. Space 2-3' between rows. In mounds: Make a mounded hills spaced 3' apart with a crater in it for catching water and plant 6 seeds 1/2" deep about 5" apart. Thin each mound leaving the 3-4 strongest seedlings. Soil Temp: 65-85 F. Days to Sprout: 5-10. Thin To/Mature Plant Spacing in rows: 18-24". Companions: beans, celery, corn, dill, nasturtium, onions, cucumbers, mint, marigold, oregano, borage.
