Start in flats or pots and transplant so that plants sit ½" deeper in the soil than they did in flats. Need calcium and plenty of nutrients, but not fresh manure or uncured compost to avoid disease. As sprouts begin to touch, remove lower leaves carefully and pinch tops to encourage side growth. Harvest sprouts from the bottom up. Stake plants by midseason, as they will become heavy and roots are shallow. Frost improves flavor.
