Planting (seed starting, quantity, spacing, depth, etc) – see Page
Watering: Base watering is best if possible. Can deliver more water = higher yield. Too much overhead watering leads to mildew and washes off applied TX (earwigs, mildew)
Fertilizer: Fish emulsion liquid
Location – see Page
Care: take care with too much overhead watering and adequate spacing
Pests & Diseases – see Page
Harvest / Yield: Cut in the morning if possible after watering the night before. Bundle and rubber band, but not too tightly.
Storage: Cover bunch in plastic bag, catching the bag up in the band for tight seal and place in container of water in ‘fridge. Will keep well for…. at least a week.
Seed saving: Takes forever for seeds to mature; plants get sick or too gangly and I haven’t been successful. Keep trying! Make sure an heirloom variety is used… duh.
Sale-ability: High. $2.50 per bunch is going rate at Mother’s and Farmers Mkt. Mother’s pays me $1.50
