A fall/spring crop rich in vitamins 

and minerals. Needs lime (ph 6.5-7.5) and nitrogen--

dig in compost or manure. Keep well watered. 

Plant in spring as early as soil can be worked, July-August for fall, and late-August to September for an excellent early spring crop (will survive hard freeze). 

Good winter vegetable--will survive winters in the open for zone 5 and will grow new leaves for winter use under fleece, cold frames, mulch, or greenhouse. 

Pick the largest leaves often for more production. 

Bolting is caused by rising temperature, longer days, or water/nutrient stress.
