Planting and care

Direct sowing is recommended as soon as the ground can be worked. Plant seeds 1.27 cm deep. Snow will not hurt them, but a desiccating cold wind will.
If you want an earlier crop, however, you may start seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last spring frost date for an earlier crop. Harden off seedlings for about one week,
