Start with tracing a shallow furrow
about 1 inch deep with a back of your rake. Rows should be set eight to ten
inches apart. Don’t crowd the seeds, because you’ll have to thin when the
young plants will have grown at least two leaves. Close your furrow. Press down lightly with your rake along the center to prepare a shallow valley that will
make watering easier. Water very often. Thin to four inches as soon as the young
plants have sprouted a few leaves. Keep only the most vigorous seedlings.
Harvest two to three months after sowing, depending on the variety and on growing
