START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In cool early spring weather, sow seeds in finely-worked soil in full sun. Shake seeds from the palm of your hand, broadcasting them about 1/2 inch apart over the entire seedbed or in wide rows, and cover lightly and evenly with 1/4 inch of fine soil. Firm soil gently and water with a fine spray. Keep seedbed evenly moist. Make small successive sowings until summer weather turns hot for a constant supply. Plant again in late summer for fall harvesting.

 

GROWING NOTES

These feathery, lacy plants grow easily in cool weather with consistent moisture and will produce a fast leafy harvest. To extend the sowing season into hot weather, sow in light shade or erect a canopy of loosely woven shade cloth over the bed. Birds are often attracted to tender young seedlings, so protect them if necessary.

 

HARVEST AND USE

To harvest by the “cut and come again” method, wait until plants are 4 to 6 inches tall. Cut as much as you need, using scissors to shear off a patch of leaves about 1 to 2 inches above the soil level. Water well and fertilize lightly and plants will regrow for more cuttings before summer heat comes on. Enjoy Ruby Red and Emerald Green’s beautiful colors and delicious, mildly spicy mustard flavor in spring and fall salads, on cheese plates and add the pretty, savory leaves to sandwiches and Panini.
