When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least
60° F, or late summer for fall harvest. In mild climates (USDA zone 7 or warmer), also in fall for winter or early spring crop.

Harvesting: Young leaves can be harvested at any time. Pick outer leaves periodically. Harvest continues until a hard fall frost. In mild climates, mulch plants well to continue harvesting throughout winter.
