Growing Recommendations: Direct sow or transplant. Weed competition can inhibit growth and production. For best results keep beds well weeded and give monthly feeding of compost tea or other organic feedings.

Harvesting & Storage:   You can harvest the leaves as soon as they are big enough to eat. When seeds are produced, simply cut the seed stalks, thresh away the seeds and store in a airtight container for later use. We recommend that after collecting seeds that the root is dug up and prepared like potatoes. Yummy!
